Holmes, Richard - Tommy The British Soldier on the Western Front, 1914–1918 - ( Item 134560 )

Published in London by Folio Society. 2016. First Thus. 2 Fine Hardbacks. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. Two-volume set. Bound in printed and blocked buckram. Set in Fournier with Akzidenz Grotesk display. 784 pages in total. Frontispieces and 48 pages of black & white photogtaphs in total, and integrated illustrations. Printed endpapers. Blocked slipcase. 10? x 6¾?. The army that fought the First World War was perhaps the greatest collective endeavour that Britain has ever seen. Five million men were mobilised – regular army, volunteers and conscripts – from all walks of life. Bank clerks, tram drivers, mill workers and farmers were transformed into gunners, signallers, army cooks and tank drivers. Richard Holmes, celebrated military historian and ex-soldier, focuses this authoritative work on the ordinary soldier – the ‘Tommy' – who fought on the Western Front. Widely considered a landmark study, this edition is illustrated with a wealth of ephemera and newly researched photography.
