An indispensable guide to the British Army during the First World War covers the men who fought for Britain: from the ‘Old Contemptibles’ – the professionals who stemmed the German advance at the beginning of the war – to the Territorials, the ‘Derby Men’, Kitchener’s ‘New Army’ and the conscripts who eventually defeated the Kaiser’s armies four years later. Andrew Rawson examines the impressive contributions made by the Dominions and the Empire and explores aspects of doctrine, training, communications, strategy and tactics, together with divisional organisations, histories and the roles of the different Arms and Services. He reviews all aspects of the soldier’s everyday life – uniforms, equipment, rations, trench life, leave and military discipline – and profiles the commanders and the legacy of the war in art, as well as providing information on cemeteries and places of interest. It is all here, in one book.
