Following the second battle of Ypres, furious fighting continued on all fronts. Casualties were high, conditions dreadful, and life expectancy short. The only break the men had was a brief home leave, or a few days away from the trenches. It was no comfort, either, that many people back at home had little idea of the suffering in the battlefields, although concern was growing as the mounting casualty lists were published. Meanwhile, British, Indian, French, and Australian forces were landed in Gallipoli, in an attempt to defeat the Ottoman Empire which had entered the war on the side of the enemy. This was a disastrous venture, as the Allies sustained appalling losses and were forced to withdraw after 8 months of bitter combat. Back in Europe, as the fighting got even heavier, more and more men were conscripted to replace the huge Allied losses in battles such as Loos and Verdun. Download and start listening now!

    " Although important and very personal, I prefer to read a more fluid account using examples of personal accounts rather than it all being told through personal accounts. All should be read in conjunction with one another. "

    " A collection of first person quotes sequential to the main events of WWII in England. If you like a continuous flowing story, this is not the book for you. If you want to get a series of brief personal observations from numerous different people, then this book is excellent. "
