No 1005: GRABENKRIEG - German Trench Warfare Vol. 1.
The stalemate in the trenches is for many the very definition of warfare in World War One. Only months after the hostilities had started the opposing armies began to dig in along the Western Front. Thus began a type of warfare completely unexpected by those in command.
The war in the trenches demanded the development of new skills for the infantry and artillery and the development of new weapons capable of blocking the enemy‘s advance over no mans land. Medieval tactics and equipment such as mining warfare and body armour would soon meet with most modern formations and tactics such as the assault forces and combined forces operations. Consequently, more than anything else World War One is the benchmark of modern warfare.
This publication will for the very first time give a highly pictorial overview on the German trench warfare on all frontlines 1914-18, with its weapons and technology explained and illustrated in unprecedented detail and with many photographs hitherto unpublished.
