WOLVERTON DURING THE FIRST WORLD WAR
by John A. Taylor

Wolverton was by far the largest community in North Bucks, UK 100 years ago, and was at the time larger than the County Town of Aylesbury. Over a quarter of the Buckinghamshire forces who fought in the Great War came from Wolverton. The extensive railway works and McCorquodales, the local printers played critical roles in the war effort.

HITLER'S FIRST WAR
by Thomas Weber

Adolf Hitler, the Men of the List Regiment, and the First World War. The author paints a portrait of Hitler's unit, The Bavarian List Regiment to rewrite the story of his military service. He refutes Hitler's account and so challenges the historical argument that the war led naturally to Nazism. The regiment consisted largely of conscripts and Hitler served with scores of Jews, including noted artist Albert Weisberger. The men shunned Private Hitler as a "rear area pig" and Hitler himself was still unsure of his political views when the war ended in 1918.

THE WESTERN FRONT COMPANION
by Mark Adkin

This is an astonishingly comprehensive and forensic anatomy of how and why the armies fought, of their weapons, equipment and tactics, for over four long and bloody years on a battlefield that stretched from the Belgian coast to the Swiss frontier. Alongside the British Army, full coverage is given to Britain’s allies – France, Belgium, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, India and the United States – as well as the Germans. It includes masses of intricate full colour maps and diagrams, illustrating particular offensives, battles, raids or tactics, the configurations of trench formations or the trajectory of mortar bombardments. But this conflict was also the first to be chronicled from the start by photography, and the book does it full justice with over 200 resonant and remarkable archive images, many rarely seen. These are complemented with modern colour photographs showing how historic battlefields look nowadays.

ARMAGEDDON ROAD
by Billy Congreve and Editor Terry Norman

A VC's Diary, 1914-1916. William La Touche (Billy) Congreve was an an exceptional man. By the time he was killed on the Somme in July 1916 at the age of twenty-five he had been awarded the DSO, MC, the Légion d'Honneur, and a posthumous VC. Born into a military family (his father had also won the VC) he became a regular soldier in the Rifle Brigade and in France became a staff officer. He chose to be in the front line as often as he could, making his remarkable diaries all the more valuable since he writes from the thick of the fighting and yet retains an objectivity that enables him to observe all that is going on around him both in the trenches and at HQ.

BREAKING THE FORTRESS LINE 1914
by Clayton Donnell

A fascinating new perspective on the German offensive against France and Belgium in 1914. It describes the intense fighting that took place around the forts and fortified cities that stood in the path of the invasion. The ordeal began with the German assault on the mighty fortress of Liège. They took twelve days to batter their way through the 'Gateway to Belgium', losing thousands of men in repeated frontal assaults, using the heaviest siege artillery ever developed to destroy the defences. The author describes the German attack, and traces the history and design of the massive infantry strongpoints, bunkers, casemates and shelters constructed by the French and the Belgians between 1871 and 1914.

THE SOMME THEN AND NOW
by John Giles

A classic Battlefield Guide from the 'After the Battle' team. In this revised edition John Giles has succeeded in recapturing the atmosphere of an era when men fought savage battles in and around water-filled trenches, amongst the stinking litter of war. Eye-witness accounts of the bitter fighting are blended with contemporary photographs and comparison pictures taken by the author of the same places today. The result is a salute to all those men who marched along the roads of Picardy to the trenches of the Somme battleground, many of whom never returned.

by Editors Andrew and Nicola Hallam

SOMME 1916
by Paul Kendall

Success and Failure on the First Day of the Battle of the Somme. Much controversy has surrounded the offensive and its impact upon the course of the war. Sir Douglas Haig's policies have been the subject of considerable debate about whether the heavy losses sustained were worth the small gains that were achieved and which appeared to have little strategic value. That was certainly the case on many sectors on 1 July 1916, where British soldiers were unable to cross No Man's Land and failed to reach, or penetrate into, the German trenches.

SECOND YPRES 1915: THE GAS ATTACK
by John Lee

The mist of poisonous gas that drifted across no man's land from the German trenches opposite the Ypres salient on 22 April, 1915 caused ghastly casualties and suffering among the unprepared defenders, and it opened up a seven-mile gap in the defensive line. It signalled the beginning of a new and frightful era of warfare. John Lee's graphic and perceptive reassessment of this milestone in the history of the Great War, and of the gruelling full-scale battle that followed, is one of the best studies of this historical event.

WANDSWORTH & BATTERSEA BATTALIONS IN THE GREAT WAR
by Paul McCue

In 1915 Lord Kitchener extended his famous “Your Country Needs You”. In south-west London, the response from two neighbouring boroughs, Wandsworth and Battersea, could not have been more different. In Wandsworth the Mayor took up the challenge and recruited, for the East Surrey Regiment, double the number of men needed for an infantry battalion. Battersea too raised a full infantry battalion pledged to the Queen’s (Royal West Surrey) Regiment. Wandsworth’s 13th East Surreys and Battersea’s 10th Queen’s both served with honour and distinction on the Western Front.
