DESCRIPTION: The deservedly popular Images of War Series is building into an 
extensive and unique visualization of war. This volume covers the French Army 
in a concise visual history of the Great War. –   Highly Recommended

The author has provided excellent concise text to introduce an outstanding selection 
of images. Captions and extended captions are equally good and add greatly to the 
images themselves.

As with the other volumes in this ground breaking series, this volume provides 
images that compliment traditional histories and text books on the subject of war. 
Publishing economics dictate that most military histories still carry their illustration 
in a few pages of a photo-plate section. Here we have a fantastic collection of 
images that are reproduced and printed very effectively.

Although the series is ideal for the serious enthusiast and the professional, it also 
serves a much wider readership very well. It is an excellent point of entry for new 
enthusiasts and also readers who have no strong military history interest but wish 
to quickly put the subject in context for them.

The Great War was not the first to see photo journalists, but it was the first conflict 
to see so many. During the conflict the casualty rate for journalists and 
photographers was high. Even so, they produced mountains of images and miles of 
movie film, including some in colour, and much of this material has never been seen 
outside archive staff and a few researchers. The publisher is performing a great 
service in bringing this stock of images into print at very affordable pricing.
