Salisbury, 1st ed., 1985. 96 pp., photo-ills., + ills. D.j., 30 x 21cm. FINE. Drawing on the author’s extensive First World War archive to focus on the war in 1916, this book strikingly emphasises the advantages of immediacy that contemporary documents and photographs have over later historical analysis and description. The visual material is supported by informative introductory text and extended captions, together with a statistical appendix. The wide-ranging subject matter of this most interesting book recaptures the ‘feel’ of the times.
