Ten million military personnel died during the Great War. Many millions of them experienced horrendous enemy attacks on entrenched positions that stretched across France and Belgium, as well as the Eastern Front. This groundbreaking book relives 24 hours of an actual Platoon under attack, using their War Diary to follow the assault hour-by-hour. A team of historians and archaeologists reconstruct the fighting, revealing how the British Tommy defended their hard-won positions against heavy fire and enemy attack. Through stunning color images the full experience of these frightening assaults comes to life. We follow the Platoon over a 24-hour period during which Tommies are wounded and evacuated for medical treatment, we see their response to the assault and their strategy to repel the attackers. This truly is Great War history brought to life.
