Abstract:

"My approach to this book is a search for a framework of understanding about how the First World War was fought. The political background, its causes and consequences, are outside the scope ... [of this book] ... I have tried to present the circumstances of the battles in terms of terrain, human resources, weather, weapons and planning from the viewpoints of both the commanders and the front-line combatants. The intention is to give readers a framework within which they can accept or reject my views, and form their own opinions of the conduct of military operations in the First World War"--Page 7.
