Praise

“[this book] pits the volunteers of Kitchener’s ‘New Armies’ against the German veterans who defended the Somme sector in the battles of July to November 1916. The book features innovative split-screen artwork, expert analysis combined with firsthand accounts and strategic and tactical maps.” –Model Retailer

“A nice primer for anyone interested in the makeup of British and German units on the Western Front during this period. The opening pages cover the origins and recruitment of the British and German units, along with training, weapons, and tactics. There are some nice period photos that compliment equally nice drawings and paintings showing standard uniforms, weapons, etc. The leadership characteristics of the opposing officers are covered, as well as a section on Morale, Motivation and Logistics. I recommend it highly for anyone wishing to understand what soldiers on both sides had to endure during World War I.” –IPM/USA Reviews

“The book is superbly written and has some very compelling period photos and superb art work that only enhance what is a pretty gruesome story that was so typical of the First World War. It is a book that draws in the reader and gives him a sense of what it was like [to experience war]. A book I fully enjoyed reading and can quite easily recommend to you.” –Scott Van Aken, www.modelingmadness.com
