Description
 
The familiar pictures of the First World War show soldiers in their trenches, hellish images of mud. But there are other dimensions not depicted by these frightening representations of battle - the mundane everyday routine, the clothing, food and the fact that much of the solder's life was spent away from the Front.

This book explores the life of the average British 'Tommy' of the Great War, in battle and at rest, in training, and on his return home. Illustrated with evocative images of war, and items of the soldier's kit, it provides answers to the questions: what was it like to be a soldier in the trenches of the frontline? What did our ancestors experience? And what was the day-to-day reality of this most horrifying of all wars?

The British Tommy in the Great War
