ON THE DANGEROUS EDGE: British and Canadian Trench Raiding on the Western Front 1914-1918

ON THE DANGEROUS EDGE: British and Canadian Trench Raiding on the Western Front 1914-1918
by Radley, Kenneth

1-220000

Examines the nature, purposes, mechanics, execution, and value of trench raiding. Leadership was critical since raiding posed many challenges including vicious hand-to-hand fighting most often at night in unfamiliar trenches. These are just some of the reasons why raids are high in human interest. Includes 29 maps, 28 b/w photos, and 9 b/w illustrations.

At the end of the first eight chapters, which thematically answer Kipling's six queries, readers will be well aware of the nature of planning and executing raids. No other book tackles 'How' to raid to the extent this one does. The first half also enables fuller appreciation of the lessons, course and conduct of the selected raids that year by year comprise the last half, based on criteria such as unusual nature, purpose, size or technology, reasons for success or failure, innovation, and lessons.
