The Trench. An oral history of life in the trenches of the First World War. This is a companion book to an ambitious new BBC documentary series which aims to recreate the everyday life of soldiers in the First World War. A group of volunteers from the city of Hull will face life in a specially reconstructed trench in northern France under as many conditions as can realistically be recreated from the testimony of surviving veterans and the official Regimental War Diary. This companion book vividly reconstructs the reality of war – what it felt like to see the front line for the first time, how the trenches themselves were constructed, how soldiers passed their leisure hours, where they slept, what they ate. It takes an original new approach to the history of the Great War, bringing home the unimaginable horror by recreating in extraordinary detail the everyday realities of trench life.

On The Front Line. In 1930, the editor of Everyman Magazine requested entries for a new anthology of Great War accounts. The result was a revolutionary book unlike any other of the period; for as Malcolm Brown notes in his introduction 'I believe it might fairly be described as a rediscovered classic'. It was the very first collection to reveal the many dimensions of the war through the eyes of the ordinary soldier and offers heart-stopping renditions of the very first gas attack; aerial dogfights above the trenches; the moment of going over the top. Told chronologically, from the first scrambles of 1914, the drudgery of the war of attrition once the trenches had been dug, to the final joy of Armistice.

Hot Blood And Cold Steel. Using a unique approach of weaving anthology with a continuous commentary, Hot Blood and Cold Steel describes what it was really like to live and fight in the trenches during the Great War.Domestic life on the line - accommodations, food and drink, wiring and carrying, the whole day and night routine - are investigated along with the operational aspects of trench life - raiding and patrolling in no-man's-land and the German lines. But as well as the blood and gore of battle, the book examines the attitudes of front line soldiers, officers and their men, to each other; to the staff; to their allies and the enemy; to wounds; to God; to the sheer horror of it all.This all encompassing portrayal of the front line grips the reader and refuses to let go, communicating a genuine understanding of what it was really like to have fought in the trenches of the Western Front

World War One Frontline News. Throughout World War One, journalists risked their lives to bring news from the frontlines. Although America did not enter the war until April 1917, their newspapers had been full of news about the war since the summer of 1914. This is the story of the war using articles and interviews that were featured in regional newspapers from throughout the United States. In chronological order, the book contains, for example, interviews with soldiers in the trenches, survivors of ships sunk by U-boats, German prisoners, aviators and nurses and doctors who cared for the wounded. There is official war statements, updates from Generals, and speeches by politicians plus accounts of battles from writers that were in the frontline trenches

Back To The Front. A rich and sobering exploration of war -- and of the meaning of history -- that will engage general readers and military buffs alike. The Western Front, the sinuous, deadly line of trenches that stretched from the English Channel to Switzerland during the First World War, also formed a scar on the imaginative landscape of our century. Back to the Front chronicles author, Stephen O'Shea's, 500-kilometre walk down what was once no man's land. In the process of making this singular trek through the old battlefields, O'Shea ruminates on the many meanings of the Front and on the nature of his own generation's - the Baby Boomer's - indifference to the past.
