The Great War Illustrated 1917 covers the battles at Arras, Passchendaele and Cambrai, the use of aviation and the role of the tanks. Some images will be familiar, and many will be seen for the first time by a new generation interested in the months that changed the world for ever.
The 1917 volume of this ground breaking series contains 1,000 images from the Great War, with a middle section in full colour. Many of the photographs will have been seen before by varius people in a number of books, but their collection in this magnificent volume is its own tribute to the men who were sacrificed by the generals in a war that was meant to end in December 1914. Moving and thought provoking at the same time, and certainly not for the faint-hearted! A fitting tribute in every sense. ~Books Monthly
