Weapons of the Trench War: 1914-1918

This text takes a detailed look at innovation in the trenches, principally from the British viewpoint, but also considers equipment used by other combatants.

The author includes weapons and associated equipment designed to overcome the problems of trench warfare at trench level, and examines some of the unsuccessful ideas that never made it to the Front. Some of the weapons, like the Livens projector, have remained largely unknown. Anthony Saunders narrative describes each type of equipment, its development and effectiveness, and what the troops at the Front thought of it, as well as official reaction to the weapons. The source material has been drawn from files in the Public Record Office and from UK patents - a rich but little-used source of detailed information about World War I weapons inventions. The ranges of illustrations supporting the text include contemporary photos and detailed drawings.

    Sorry. That should be Osprey "type" books.
    So Concord, Blitzkrieg, Spearhead, WRG Armies & Enemy's etc.
    Basically, highly illustrated guides to mil/hist topics under about 120 pages.

    Thanks again sisyphus and ronsin

    I have been leaving WWII alone for a couple of reasons.
    I'm not much interested in WWII outside of Africa, the Balkans, China and the Winter War and I know GG has no interest in non "colonial" periods.
    But mostly the "pro" uploaders seem to up WWII and modern subjects as they are far more popular and I don't want to compete with or do anything to discourage them from putting up military or history subjects.
    For the same reason, I am avoiding upping stuff that is doing the rounds or the DDL sites (unless it is on our list of projected U/L's)

    But I will start covering some of my interest areas soon, what the hell no one else is.
