Back To The Front from the Author: Stephen O'Shea. A rich and sobering exploration of war -- and of the meaning of history -- that will engage general readers and military buffs alike. The Western Front, the sinuous, deadly line of trenches that stretched from the English Channel to Switzerland during the First World War, also formed a scar on the imaginative landscape of our century. Back to the Front chronicles author, Stephen O'Shea's, 500-kilometre walk down what was once no man's land. In the process of making this singular trek through the old battlefields, O'Shea ruminates on the many meanings of the Front and on the nature of his own generation's - the Baby Boomer's - indifference to the past.

The Trench from the Author: Richard Van Emden. An oral history of life in the trenches of the First World War. This is a companion book to an ambitious new BBC documentary series which aims to recreate the everyday life of soldiers in the First World War. A group of volunteers from the city of Hull will face life in a specially reconstructed trench in northern France under as many conditions as can realistically be recreated from the testimony of surviving veterans and the official Regimental War Diary. This companion book vividly reconstructs the reality of war – what it felt like to see the front line for the first time, how the trenches themselves were constructed, how soldiers passed their leisure hours, where they slept, what they ate. It takes an original new approach to the history of the Great War, bringing home the unimaginable horror by recreating in extraordinary detail the everyday realities of trench life.

Frontline Cookbook from the Author: Andrew Robertshaw. An army marches on its stomach and it fights on its stomach too – yet have you ever wondered how hundreds of men on the frontline are fed amidst hails of bullets and how kitchens are created in the desert or in the trench lines? In 1941 the army officially created the Army Catering Corps and opened the Army School of Cookery in Aldershot (to be followed by other schools all over the world, including Poona, India). Troops were trained to make meals out of the bare minimum of ingredients, to feed a company of men from only a mess tin and cook curries to feed hundreds only yards from the frontline. This book tells the story of how soldiers became army cooks, their training and in the frontline kitchen. Frontline Cooking also brings together recipes from the Second World War, including hand-written notes from troops fighting in the Middle East, India and all over Europe. Many recipes are illustrated with cartoons and drawings on how to assemble the perfect oven and kitchen tools at a moment’s notice from nothing. This book is the perfect inspiration for those who like to create an amazing meal anywhere, anytime, from anything.

On The Front Line from the Author: Jon E. Lewis. In 1930, the editor of Everyman Magazine requested entries for a new anthology of Great War accounts. The result was a revolutionary book unlike any other of the period; for as Malcolm Brown notes in his introduction 'I believe it might fairly be described as a rediscovered classic'. It was the very first collection to reveal the many dimensions of the war through the eyes of the ordinary soldier and offers heart-stopping renditions of the very first gas attack; aerial dogfights above the trenches; the moment of going over the top. Told chronologically, from the first scrambles of 1914, the drudgery of the war of attrition once the trenches had been dug, to the final joy of Armistice.
