Tommy 1914 -1918 by Richard Holmes

The British Soldier in First World War on the Western Front 1914 -1918. The army that fought the First World War was perhaps the greatest collective endeavour that Britain has ever seen. Five million men were mobilised – regular army, volunteers and conscripts – from all walks of life. Bank clerks, tram drivers, mill workers and farmers were transformed into gunners, signallers, army cooks and tank drivers.

Richard Holmes, celebrated military historian and ex-soldier, focuses this authoritative work on the ordinary soldier – the ‘Tommy’ – who fought on the Western Front. Widely considered a landmark study, this edition is illustrated with a wealth of ephemera and newly researched photography.
