The popular view of the First World War is of stalemate, but behind the lines the railways moved soldiers and materiel more rapidly than ever before. Drawing on first-hand accounts and illustrated with archive photographs, this book examines the railway war in detail, from the decisions of the planners and generals to the experiences of the staff who kept the railways running and the people who relied on them to get to battle and back home again.
