The Great War From the Air: Then and Now - Gail Ramsey

No matter how hard we may try to picture in our minds the devastation wrought by years of almost continual bombardment, actual photographs still have the power to surprise, even shock, us. This book demonstrates that so vividly. There was an area of France, roughly ten miles wide, which took years to clear of all the war material and turn it back into productive use. There was another area, some seven to eight miles deep, where the devastation was so complete that every building had been ground into dust, and the actual earth itself had been so mixed with the substrate that restitution would be a long and costly job. Some people even argued that the ground was so heavily contaminated that there was no point in trying to bring it back into use and that it should simply abandoned to nature. This area covered nearly 50,000 acres.

Britain At War Team Produce WWI Commemorative Edition

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War, the team at Britain at War Magazine have produced a 132 page highly illustrated special edition.

Few could ever have imagined the consequences of the decision to declare war on Germany. A great clash of armies was expected with one conclusive battle to decide the fate of Europe; no-one anticipated four years of global warfare that would cost the lives of millions of soldiers and civilians. It changed the world forever.
