Summary
"...The Western Front Companion is not a mere chronological account fo the fighting [of World War I]. Rather, it is an astonishingly comprehensive and forensic anatomy of how and why the armies fought, of their weapons, equipment and tactics, for over four long and bloody years on a battlefield stretching from the Belgian coast to the Swiss frontier--a distance of 450 miles. Alongside the British Army, full coverage is given to Britain's allies--France, Belgium, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, India and the United States--as well as the Germans." -- Jacket flap
