24HR UNDER ATTACK: Tommy Defends the Frontline
Ten million military personnel died during the Great War. Many millions of them experienced horrendous enemy attacks on entrenched positions that stretched across France and Belgium, as well as further afield. This book relives 24 hours of an actual platoon under attack, using a battalion war diary to follow the assault hour by hour.
A team of historians and archaeologists reconstructs the fighting, revealing how the British Tommy defended his hard-won positions against heavy fire and enemy attack. Robertshaw presents the Great War in color, as it was experienced, using stunning images of re-enactors to bring the the full force of these frightening assaults to life.
