Illustrated with black-and-white photographs from the Imperial War Museum, compliments the mixture of poetry in the Homeric style with the prose that is interspersed. E.g. the battle of Cambrai, 20-27th November 1917. This battle was carried out on the British side in an unusual way, which accounts for the complete surprise that overtook the Germans, and the comparatively small loss of life on our side.
