How the War Was Wonby Tim Travers
Synopses & Reviews
Explains what part the British Expeditionary Force played in bringing World War One to an end.
This sometimes controversial book explains what part the British Expeditionary Force played in bringing World War I to an end. Tim Travers, author of The Killing Ground, also available as a Pen and Sword Military Classic shows in detail how an Allied victory was achieved. He focuses on the British Army on the Western Front in relation to the themes of 'command' and 'technology', drawing on a wide range of sources from archives in three countries.
The book provides new arguments about the origins of mechanical warfare, the role of Douglas Haig, and the near-collapse of the German army by July 1918. Tim Travers argues that, despite poor leadership, the British army ultimately wore its opponent down by using increasing amounts of technology.
Complex and detailed information is presented in a clear and readable form. An introductory paragraph at the beginning of each chapter, combined with numerous maps and photographs, also makes the book particularly useful for students.
