The Great War
"Hell's Last Horror"Book - 1997
This title, specially geared to the requirements of the GCSE syllabuses, examines the Great War, from the experiences of the soldiers in the trenches to the impact of the war on civilians working on the home front. Aspects of warfare are given coverage, including the development of modern weapons such as the tank and aircraft, and the use of gas. Emphasis is given to specific battles of the war including the Somme, Verdun, Ypres and Jutland. The author also asks, why did Germany lose the war, did the peace settlement mark the beginning of a real truce, and how did the legacy of the war affect the civilian population - especially the role and status of women.
