About this Item

ARCHIVAL COVERING FOR PROTECTION AND ENHANCEMENT.p/o nmae on title page. Tight binding, clean, clear easy to read print. Numerous b/w and colour photographs. "By the end of 1914 the war had reached stalemate as the Allies and Germans crouched in a line of trenches which stretched unbroken from Switzerland to the North Sea. Both sides still believed in the possibility of a swift victory but over the next two years the flower of a generation was to be massacred in a series of increasingly futile and senseless attacks. Alistair Horne, one of Britain"s leading historians, describes the horrors of the war in the trenches, and of two mighty battles -- Verdun, where the Germans set out to bleed the French into surrender, and the Somme where British troops marched out in parade-ground order to be slaughtered by German machine guns." Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 500596
