B1924

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The author has not confined his excellent account of the deployment of the Machine Gun Corps to the Western trenches. He has covered all of the campaigns of WWI where the Corps was deployed and his inclusion of the words of his comrades provides a unique record in a style that is easy to read and conveys the conditions, spirit and society of the machine gunner in WWI. As the machine gun created the conditions of trench warfare, it is impossible to understand WWI without understanding how the machine gun was employed and this is the finest book yet published on the use of machine guns and of the people who served them.
