"The book's topics include the preparations for war and the mobilisation of 1914; the 'roses of no-man's land' - the contribution made by nurses; 'blighty ones and other ones' - the wounded and their treatment; 'brother lead and sister steel' - soldiers and their weapons; scenes from the battlefield and the campaigns where Tommies fought; the armistice and its aftermath."--BOOK JACKET." ;
