Summary

The struggle between Germany and the Allies along the Western Front is for many the most familiar element of World War I. However, many less well-known theatres of conflict, key to the overall progress and conduct of the war, hold as much relevance to both the traveller and the armchair enthusiast. In this work, the author sheds light on the fighting methods of the protagonists in less familiar settings, whether in the Italian Alps or in the cloying heat of the Greek coast.

Author Biography

Martin Marix-Evans has written more than 20 books on aspects of military history, including Ypres in War and Peace and the Fall of France: Act With Daring.
