London England: Headline. Very Good. 1994. 1st Paperback Printing. Soft Cover. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall Octavo 0747278342 Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. 1915. The Death of Innocence. Slight foxing to edge. This book is the latest magnificent book from the writer who has established herself as the leading chronicler of the First World War. Her particular skill is in presenting the human face of what Wilfred Owen described as 'carnage incomparable and human squander'. Although the Regulars of the original Expeditionary Force had suffered 90 per cent casualties and the remnant of the British army had gone to ground, most soldiers still believed that 1915 would see the breaking of the deadlock. Their hopes were shattered on the bloody battlefields of Neuve Chapelle, at Ypres, at Loos and far away on the shores of Gallipoli. Grim resolve replaced early optimis, and innocence died in the r trenches that ran through the Flanders swamps. The book is told from the viewpoint of the men themselves; it is the dogged heroism and sardonic humour of the ordianary soldiers which shine through the pages of the author's epic narrative. This book is a unique blend of compelling military history and poignant memories that can never be equalled. Illustrated. 625 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions ,and all types of Academic Literature.) ., Headline, 1994

[EAN: 9780747278344], WORLD WAR ONE, BRITISH ARMY, WESTERN FRONT., London 1994, Headline, UK first paper edition thus, paper covers, VG condition, 6 x 9 , 625 pages, illus, maps, index. Detailed study of the 1915 British offensives in France during WW One, especially heavy with first person memoirs. Based on letters, journals and memoirs, this fifth volume of Macdonald's chronicle of the Great War as British soldiers experienced it covers the battles of Neuve Chapelle and Loos, the second battle of Ypres and the Gallipoli campaign. The author provides a detailed look at the unique trench culture of the British 1st Army and analyzes "lessons learned," such as the proper deployment of massed artillery and infantry reserves during that bloody year. Her assessment of Allied strategy and tactics is unparalleled in clarity. . Her statistics further dramatize the loss of life on the Western Front in 1915 (Macdonald regards Gallipoli as an extension of the Western Front): Of the 19,500 square miles of German-occupied territory fought over, only eight were recovered-an average of 200,000 casualties per mile. Macdonald's vividly rendered history evokes pity and awe at the slaughter. By Christmas 1915, she notes, there was still some hope of ending the conflict quickly, but it was no longer the hope of innocent optimism., [PU: Headline]
