DESCRIPTION: This is a volume in the Great War series from the 
German perspective. There is a wealth of photographic 
illustration and this is perhaps the most important book in the 
series because the war was to be won or lost in the first year  – 
Highly Recommended.

This is a photo essay with text confined to introductions, 
captions and extended captions. The reader may be surprised by 
the scope and quality of the images. Although the camera went 
to war during the American Civil War and a number of conflicts 
that followed, the First World War was the first where the 
photojournalist competed, and mostly won, with the war artist, 
and where cameras were available in large numbers, both those 
provided for military photographers and those private cameras 
carried by ordinary soldiers. Considering the conditions under 
which many images were captured, and the availability of 
processing facilities, an incredible number of images have 
survived and survived in incredibly good condition.

This book provides a unique image of war for the Germans in the 
first year.

When the Germans invaded Belgium and France they needed to 
advance rapidly and win in the West, allowing them to move 
their troops by rail to the East Front and the defeat of the 
Russians. For them it was a case of winning in the first few 
months or ultimately losing badly. As history records, their 
advance stalled and was thrown back to be followed by a 
horrible war of attrition and a humiliating surrender that 
was so bad that it stored up the determination to try again 
and seek revenge. This study of the first year makes it much 
easier to understand what followed and why.
