With so many books being released as part of the centenary celebrations, and with most of them achieving a high standard, it can be very difficult for a reader to select to suit his or her tastes and interests. This book stands out because it has a fine selection of images and sharp text that presents a series of snapshots across the full range of the war in Europe. It is ideal for those readers who know little of the Great War because it is a great introduction. It is also valuable book for the enthusiast and the knowledgable because its scope covers all of the aspects of the Great War that might have been missed.

DESCRIPTION: This is a rework of a magazine, ‘I Was There’, that was published in September 1938 at the height of the failed Anglo-French policy of appeasing Hitler. It vividly brought before the public the stories of those who had fought and suffered and triumphed in the Great War. These were stories that had been told in 1918 and been allowed to dim through a peacetime desire to forget about the sorrow and pay almost any price to avoid a repeat.

This book provides a comprehensive view of the actions and is heavily illustrated with a fine collection of images through the body of the book. It includes some of the less well recognized aspects of the Great War, An example is the operation by the Naval Division of an armoured train in defence of Antwerp.
