Details

Ten chapters introduce and develop themes, as well as providing a variety of further activities, and basic understanding is tested in the "can you remember?" and "check our understanding" sections of each chapter, while source-based questions and "things to do" encourage the development of specific historical skills. The book also includes a map, a glossary, a list of books and other resources and an index. Stewart Ross draws on an unusual selection of written and pictorial sources as he reveals life at home and in the trenches in a conflict hailed as "the war to end all wars".
