The First World War was different to previous conflicts for many reasons. Mechanization facilitated destruction on an unprecedented scale while mass communication and literacy meant that posters, advertising and photography commentated, cajoled and recorded as never before, and letters and diaries were routinely written by all ranks. This souvenir box set explores the major campaigns through hundreds of contemporary photographs and battle maps, and includes 30 facsimile documents plus a DVD containing a documentary film and veterans' first-hand accounts.
