Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"If the Great War centenary inspires new projects by any TS&MF readers, I highly recommend Dr. Stephen Bull’s new book as a great reference. Trench: A History of Trench Warfare on the Western Front is a 272-page paperback packed with well-written information, photos in both color and black and white, and maps. Bull lays out the big picture while providing telling insights from the individual soldier’s-eye-view of the scarred landscape. This terrific book is a moving reminder of why WWI was one of the most apocalyptic chapters in the history of mankind." Toy Soldier and Model Figure

"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.

The 100th anniversary of the start of WW1 was the signal to publish all manner of books and documentary programmes devoted to that particular war. Whereas many of the resultant products suffer from an embarrassing lack of competent research it is always a pleasure to reveal one which stands apart from the rest - if only because it really is that good. As one who spends almost every waking hour immersed in researching lost ships (it's what I do!), I am aware of the complexities of uncovering relevant and accurate information. Having carefully studied this particular product, it is quite clear author Stephen Bull has mastered the art of finding those all-important facts. Having done so, he has put them together in an immensely readable, educational and hugely enjoyable work.

For those who know little or nothing about `Trench Warfare' - where neither side gained or lost anything appreciable - apart from thousands of lives, this work is a revelation. For those who thought they already knew all there was to know, I suspect it will also prove to be an education. For those who wish to study the subject - look no further.

After an illuminating Introduction, the book commences with an equally informative Chronology which the reader will continue to consult as the book is studied. We are then treated to an overview of the armies involved and of the beginning of Trench Warfare. All soldiers have to `dig-in' and no ground gives way easily when you are using an army-issue folding spade at a time of desperately wanting to become instantly hidden from the enemy. Who would have thought that those first defensive positions across the Western Front would have been extended and modified to such extreme limits.

HASH(0x93505a2c) étoiles sur 5 A superlative and well illustrated account of WW1 trench warfare 12 janvier 2011
Par Chris Carter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Trench, by Stephen Bull, is an excellent introduction to the trench warfare so prevalent in the First World War. He begins with the first examples of entrenchment, and explains how they developed into the complex systems which were present through the middle and end of the conflict. Lest you think this is a dry account with lots of cross-sections and tables, take heart, this book is absolutely engrossing, and covers all aspects of trench warfare. There are chapters on life in the trenches, weapons and tactics, gas warfare, sniping, and even the emergence of the tank and its effect on the trenches. The book is also replete with illustrations, including many excellent and fascinating pictures, and a wide variety of color illustrations as well. In addition, there are case studies describing individual actions, with an emphasis on the terrain and fortifications. Overall, if you have an interest in World War One, this volume is a must. It is a fantastic primer on the main type of warfare practiced on the Western front, and it gives you a real insight as to just how the soldiers lived, fought, and died in those horrible muddy holes.

HASH(0x93505a80) étoiles sur 5 The Finest Book Ever Written the Fundamental Technology of World War I 14 avril 2011
Par Architect FAIA - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book clearly explains and illustrates trench warfare with its related technologies and counter-technologies. Without a clear understanding understanding of trench warfare it is impossible to understand World War I. There are a lot misconceptions about WWI that are debunked with this book. This book is incredibly well written with many large rare ultra-fascinating photographs from Britain's Imperial War Museum. The book is of the highest quality production with its high quality paper that accentuates the details of the extremely high resolution photographs. This clearly one of the finest books written on World War I with an incredible wealth of original material and never published historic photographs.

After an illuminating Introduction, the book commences with an equally informative Chronology which the reader will continue to consult as the book is studied. We are then treated to an overview of the armies involved and of the beginning of Trench Warfare. All soldiers have to `dig-in' and no ground gives way easily when you are using an army-issue folding spade at a time of desperately wanting to become instantly hidden from the enemy. Who would have thought that those first defensive positions across the Western Front would have been extended and modified to such extreme limits.

There then follows chapters on; `Trenchtown,' New Weapons and Tactics, Gas, Raiding & Sniping, Mining, Concrete Bunkers, the Tank and Over the Top before ending with; Conclusion, Notes, Bibliography and Index.

The book is lavishly illustrated throughout with an excellent selection of (mostly b&w) historic photographs which are really impressive for their quality in addition to the breadth of subject covered. Whereas we are often asked to accept poor quality pictures from this period in time, these are particularly outstanding... Of the hundreds of images to consider, I particularly liked the photo of US Lt. Browning firing the machine gun designed by his father and the one showing New Zealand soldiers holding a massive rifle - designed to penetrate the Tank!

There are also a number of colour plates including trench maps, documents, artwork and colour photographs. These include a wide variety of subjects such as; equipment, particular scenes, uniforms and significant personalities - such as Captain Albert Ball who had already earned the VC, DSO and MC by the time he died at the age of 20.

The most captivating element of those photographs, however, is how much the soldiers from all sides looked and dressed almost exactly the same.

Altogether, I would suggest this is as complete an explanation of the subject as we are likely to find and I congratulate both author and publisher for such an excellent product.

Par Brenton Price - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Trench: A History of Trench Warfare is a very interesting and well written book. The author is able to keep interest buy keeping the story moving and interjecting new information that may have been overlooked before in other books about WWI warfare. Trench:, really does a nice job of describing some of the strategy and thought processes of Generals on both sides of the conflict. A definite read for anybody that is interested in The Great War.
