Charting the BEA's entry into warfare in 1914, he tells the story in words and pictures of the new conscripted army's life through the five years of slaughter and suffering. He brilliantly conveys not only the heroism, but also the universal horror, futility, humour and boredom of warfare. From the front-line troops and the daily dice with death, to the support lines, communications, enlistment, training and propaganda. Every aspect of the soldiers life will be covered here, in this brilliant collection of images and interviews, that brings the Great War to life once more.

Max Arthur is rightly seen as one of Britain's leading oral historians of the Great War, collecting first-hand accounts of survivors from Britain's armed services, and allowing their stories to be told to a wider audience. He has enjoyed great success with previous books Forgotten Voices of the Great War, and his most recent book Lost Voices of the Edwardians.He has now delved into the superb photographic archives of the Imperial War Museum and other collections throughout Europe and unearthed remarkable, never before seen images, that when married with his contemporary eyewitness accounts, truly give the reader a unique view of the horror that was World War I.
