This is a fantastic box set to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War, which includes 30 rare facsimile documents and a DVD including veterans firsthand accounts.
One hundred years after the Austrians fired the first shots of war against the Serbs, the events of the First World War are remembered as some of the most devastating and traumatic in history. From the brutal carnage of the Somme, Arras, Passchendaele and Gallipoli to colonial campaigns in Africa, Mesopotamia and Palestine, from revolution in Russia to civil war in Ireland, The Great War Remembered brings the conflicts of 1914-1918 to life as never seen before.
Includes over 200 photographs and colour battle maps, as well as more than 30 painstakingly researched rare facsimile documents - personal and unit war diaries, letters, secret plans and telegrams, orders, maps and posters.
The DVD in this book contains a film entitled 'Our Empire's Fight for Freedom' and a series of veterans' first hand accounts entitled 'We Fought on the Western Front'. This is the ultimate interactive guide to The Great War.
The item is in excellent condition and consistent with age.
