Description

New Edition with all Maps Reproduced in Full Colour. The Official History of the Great War was the grandest official history ever produced in Britain. Its purpose was to provide "within reasonable compass an authoritative account, suitable for general readers and for students at military schools." Due to the number of full-colour maps bound in each volume previous attempts to reprint this valuable reference ether floundered, or were produced with the maps in monochrome. At last the acclaimed work of the official cartographers who had ninety thousand maps at their command can be examined as they intended in full colour. This is part of a multi-volume set covering the Great War and this volume is one of two covering 1914. It describes the opening weeks of the War, the Battle of Mons, the retreat to the Seine, the Marne, the Aisne and the transfer of the BEF to Flanders August-October 1914. Appendices contain organisation and Order of Battle details of opposing forces, operation orders and correspondence between Kitchener and French.
