The Great War continues to fascinate, and never more so as we approach 2014, the centenary year of its outbreak. There is an abiding fascination in the uniform and equipment of the British Great War soldier. What was it like to wear? What were puttees? What does a gas mask look like? How heavy was the equipment? How did you dig a trench? These and other typical questions will be answered in Haynes Manual style, providing a vivid insight into life during the Great War for the average “Tommy Atkins."
Peter Doyle is a scientist and military historian specializing in the role of terrain in warfare, and has been collecting objects relating to the role of Britain in both world wars all his life. He is a resident of London, England.
