Bibliographic Details

Title: 1914. Voices from the Battlefields.

Publisher: (2013) Pen & Sword,, (Barnsley):

Publication Date: 2013

Binding: Hardcover

Edition: First Edition..


octavo, viii, 296pp. The opening battles on the Western Front marked a watershed in military history. A dramatic, almost Napoleonic war of movement quickly gave way to static, attritional warfare in which modern weaponry had forced the combatants to take to the earth. Some of the last cavalry charges took place in the same theater in which armored cars, motorcycles and airplanes were beginning to make their presence felt. These dramatic developments were recorded in graphic detail by soldiers who were eyewitnesses to them. There is a freshness and immediacy to their accounts which Matthew Richardson exploits in this thoroughgoing reassessment of the 1914 campaign. His vivid narrative emphasizes the perspective of the private soldiers and the junior officers of the British Army, the men at the sharp end of the fighting. Extensively illustrated. As new. black boards in pictorial dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory # 23789
