Arras: The Spring 1917 Offensive in Panoramas including Vimy Ridge and Bullecourt

£150.00

Product description

Arras: The Spring 1917 Offensive in Panoramas including Vimy Ridge and Bullecourt
Peter Barton with research by Jeremy Banning
Constable, London, in association with the Imperial war Museum, 2010.
Hardback; 270 x 215 mm; blue boards with silver titles on spine; 312 pages. Original clipped dust jacket. Profusely illustrated and printed on good quality paper.
The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound. The colour of the boards has rubbed off on to the inside of the dust jacket but not damaged the boards. Minimal wear to the edges of the boards and bumping to the dust jacket. The fly title is annotated in blue ink: “Dear Hugh Memories of a fascinating trip to France in 2008… All my love Carly xxx 25 July 2010.”
In spring 1917, Allied troops on the Western Front began the largest ever artillery barrage on German positions, using over 2.7 million shells. During the battle they succeeded in capturing Vimy Ridge. But the ultimate cost of fighting was immense, with a daily casualty rate 40% greater than the Somme and almost double that of Passchendaele - making it hour for hour the most dangerous major campaign of the First World War.
In this major new account of the conflict, Peter Barton showcases over 50 re-discovered British and German panoramic photographs of the battlegrounds, from the start of the first Battle of the Scarpe to the final push on Vimy Ridge. Taken at huge personal risk by specialist photographers, they reveal what no other photographs can - the view beyond the trench parapet.
Also included are unpublished testimony, letters and memoirs from the different serving regiments, sourced from archives across the UK, Canada, Germany and elsewhere; and stunning mapping, plans and diagrams throughout.
