Revue de presse
"In this book on the trench, author Stephen Bull relies on four previous Osprey editions to help provide not only some material, but also images and artwork to help illustrate this volume. But this isn't just a rehash of those previous works as most of what is written is new to this volume ... It is a truly engrossing book that pulls in the reader with its narrative and personal stories." -Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madne"
"Military collections will find this specific and key." - The Midwest Book Review
Présentation de l'éditeur
An authoritative history of the trenches, drawing on the renowned resources and photographic collection of the Imperial War Museums, providing unique insight into trench warfare on the Western Front.
'Sometimes I clamber up beside the sentries and look out. There's little to see, rough ground, the barbed wire entanglement about 15 yards away, the vague line of German trenches. If a flare goes up it lights the whole place... If you hear a machine gun you duck your head. The bullets patter along the parapet.'
„Christopher Stone, Junior Officer, 22nd Royal Rusiliers.
