The Western Front by Nicola Barber


The Western Front by Nicola Barber

This title explores the various debates surrounding World War I. As well as explaining the Western Front and describing events in the main text, the book consists of three different kinds of panels that appear throughout - the first examining events in question, the second examining key people (eg leaders), the third following the 'what if?' approach - for example, for this title, 'what if Britain had stayed out of the war?' Split up into thematically-based chapters, the book clearly and logically examines the many questions raised both at the time of the War, and since, with facts and opinions from leading historians. It is complete with full colour photographs, maps and detailed timeline and glossary.
