eBook (ePub): $2.99
This collection of heroic soldier's stories relays sobering accounts of combat on the Western Front during the First World War. Evocative and vivid descriptions of the early stages of the conflict... More > populate these pages, from which the reader can gain lessons of the conditions of the stagnant front. Originally published in 1915, the set of tales within this book offer sobering accounts from various battlefields which took place during the early stages of the war. Although the war was not even halfway over by the time these stories found publication, the horrors of the conflict were already a fact of life, with casualties rapidly mounting on both sides. At that time public opinion hadn’t yet fully turned against the war, and in Britain – the nationality of all the soldiers here – the need for showing progress was essential to sustain civilian and military morale. All of the soldiers in these pages were already serving in their regiments, or had volunteered for service, when the war commenced.< Less

Horses Were More Valuable Than Men By Charles Bassett & Ed. Stefan R Woroniecki
Paperback: $8.50
Prints in 3-5 business days
Rescued from a tatty scrapbook, my grandfather’s WW1 memoirs give an “underview” of the war rather than the frequently described overviews of Front-line battles. Private Bassett was... More > placed in the transport section of his battalion, which involved mainly the horse-drawn delivery of all army supplies. Thus fortuitously, he was spared serving in the trenches at the Front. His book provides an alternative angle on the war, with descriptions of both trivial and serious events, leading up to his battle injury and subsequent release home. This book may appeal to: • Historians, for behind-the-front detail • Those with an interest in France and Belgium, for the frequent references to the war-torn villages near the borders • Animal lovers, for the descriptions of horses and mules (the title is a quote from his postscript) • Anyone who wants a flavour of WW1, but would prefer a generally lighter and shorter read Stefan Woroniecki Editor< Less

Airships at Jambol By F Goebel

From an airship historian’s view the full text of this 1925 book is at first glance slightly disappointing. Goebel appears to have been one of the ground-based maintenance team and... More > Förster’s contributions often read like a travelogue written by someone very proud of their extensive Classical education. Nonetheless, accepting this perspective, the text still provides us with a rare record of the remarkable African flight of the L 59 in November 1917. Goebel’s text also contains a description of the airship station at Jambol, Bulgaria; gives a detailed account of German aviation weather facilities in WW1; explains wireless navigation methods; and provides a description of the Schütte-Lanz airship SL X. Brief accounts are given of the operational flights and ultimate fate of the SL X, the LZ 101, and the L 59. General von Lettow-Vorbeck adds his perspective on the African Flight and describes the battle for Ngomano which resolved his supply problem on the very day that the L 59 had planned to arrive.< Less
