Description
The early battles of World War I during the autumn and winter of 1914 were open, mobile affairs of the kind long familiar to professional soldiers. By early 1915, however, a new type of conflict had emerged—trench warfare. Martin Marix Evans relates how the then-recent invention of machine guns contributed to this deadly stalemate, using examples from battles whose names have become synonymous with futility and failure: Ypres, the Somme, Passchendaele, and Gallipoli. Using maps, information on troop deployments, and first-hand accounts from participants, Evans re-creates one of the pivotal struggles in human history.
