2nd ed., 1937. Xviii + 762 pp. Cloth, 24 x 16cm. Edges foxed o/w V.G. This book is not an anthology of literature. It is an attempt to display the First World War through the eyes of those who took an active part in it. From accounts of soldiers fighting at the Marne, Ypres, Loos, Mesopotamia, the Somme, Gaza, Arras, Gallipoli, the Aisne and countless other battles, to Zeppelins over England, to Jutland, the sinking of the LUSITANIA and the PERSIA and an account of a U-boat adventure. This book provides a rich tapestry of experience from servicemen on different fronts and on different sides. It includes accounts of other interesting subjects such as the first gas-attack, the prison camp at Wittenberg, and an escape from the Turks.
