At the outbreak of the First World War in 1914 Captain J. L. Jack was serving with the First Cameronians, one of the earliest British regiments to arrive in France. Almost every day while serving in France and Flanders, Jack kept a secret diary. This diary is unique. It presents the detail of a regular officer's life at war during virtually the whole of the First World War on the Western Front. Jack was witness not only to the horror and wretchedness of much that happened in the trenches but also to the bravery and spirit that kept the British soldiers in the line going through to the momentous battles of 1918 and final victory. Poignant and moving, as well as describing the reality of war on the Western Front, these diaries have been edited and linked with commentaries by the distinguished military historian John Terraine.
General Jack's Diary 1914-18 Paperback edition by John Terraine
John Terraine was an eminent military historian, broadcaster and author of books including DOUGLAS HAIG: THE EDUCATED SOLDIER, TO WIN A WAR and IMPACTS OF WAR. His contribution to the 26-part BBC TV documentary THE GREAT WAR launched him on a career that transformed attitudes to the history of the First World War. He died in 2003.
The centenary of the First World War has brought with it much attention on the lives of those left behind at home. This book explains how the daily life of children one hundred years ago was affected by war.
The First World War was one of the seminal events in world history. This book traces its history through the examination of iconic items like the Zeppelin, the gas mask and Winston Churchill's Cigar, to personal objects which tell the poignant stories of individuals and official documents, medals and badges.
C.E.W. Bean's correspondence from WWI made him a household name in Australia. Less well known is the role he played in the establishment of the Australian War Memorial. In 1919, Bean returned to Gallipoli to fill in the missing pieces of what happened during the campaign. This book shares the story of the Australian Historical Mission.
During the dreadful Battle at Verdun, the French command urged the British to ease the pressure, and launch their planned offensive on the Somme. The battle started on July 1st 1916, and in September the British used tanks for the first time. The summer of 1917 was the wettest for years, and on the 31st July the third battle of Ypres started.
