BOOK - The Great War Handbook, A Guide for Family Historians & Students of the Conflict
By Geoff Bridger, Foreword by Correlli Barnett
Published by Pen and Sword Books, S. Yorkshire, UK (2009)

Hardcover...32.95 (C$)

Geoff Bridger's The Great War Handbook answers many of the basic questions newcomers ask when confronted by this enormous and challenging subject - not only what happened and why, but what was the Great War like for ordinary soldiers who were caught up in it. He describes the conditions the soldiers endured, the deadly risks they ran, their daily routines and the small roles they played in the complex military machine they were part of. His comprehensive survey of every aspect of the soldier's life, from recruitment and training, through the experience of battle and its appalling aftermath, is an essential guide for students, family historians, teachers and anyone who is eager to gain an all-round understanding of the nature of the conflict. His authoritative handbook gives a fascinating insight into the world of the Great War - it is a basic reference book that no student of the subject can afford to be without.

Reviews:
  • The book is indexed, but the table of contents is detailed, identifying all the subheadings. This makes it easy to find information on a specific subject. If you have a British World War 1 relatives that you are searching for, this is one book that you will want to add to your collection, and it should be in any genealogy collection with a military of modern European focus. - Paul Milner, FGS Forum
