Description - The British Soldier of the First World War by Peter Doyle

The familiar pictures of the First World War show soldiers in their trenches: hellish images of mud. But there is another dimension not depicted by these frightening representations of battle: the mundane everyday routine of the majority of the soldier's life that was spent away from the Front. This book explores the life of the average British 'Tommy' of the Great War, in battle and at rest, in training, and on his return home. Illustrated with evocative images of the war, and items of the soldier's kit, it provides an answer to the question: What was it like to be a soldier in the trenches on the front line?
