The text and the colourful and varied illustrations cover the organisation, uniforms, insignia, decorations, personal equipment and weapons of these famous troops. Also detailed are the training, communications, leadership, and campaign history of the various units that fought during this turbulent time, from the arrival of the BEF in France in August 1914 to the end of the bloody battle of the Somme in autumn 1916.
