The Imperial War Museum Book of the First World War - A Great Conflict Recalled in Letters, Diaries and Memoirs
The Imperial War Museum Book of the First World War - A Great Conflict Recalled in Letters, Diaries and Memoirs
Brown, Malcolm

Published in association with the IWM, this book opens a window on to the wealth of material acquired by the Museum since its inception in 1917. It includes extracts from diaries, letters, memoirs, taped interviews, service magazines and journals, together with a wide range of illustrations including photographs, posters, documents, cartoons, works of art and clips of film. The scope is enormous. The war of the trenchs, the great battles of the Western Front, the war at sea, the war in the air, 'sideshows' such as Gallipoli, Salonika and Kut, the contributions of women, the experience of civilians and children; these and many other subjects are represented in vivid detail. Here above all is the voice of the individual caught up in this cataclysmic conflict: soldiers going into action, sailors in warships or in convoys, airmen jousting with the enemy, workers in factories, nurses and ambulance drivers at the front, prisoners, internees, chaplains, conscientious objectors, the wounded, the brave, the fearful, the bemused. This is a book for the newcomer to the subject but also for the serious student and the expert, encapsulating in one rich volume the essense of the Great War of 1914-1918...
