Troops from the Kingdom of Saxony fought as part of the German Empire's army in the First World War but retained a distinct identity, which has since been largely forgotten. Drawing on the detailed first-hand accounts of ten soldiers of the Royal Saxon Army and illustrated with over 300 contemporary photographs, this history provides a review of the Saxons' actions over four years at the Western Front, and an insight into the experience of the soldiers.
