The Western Front stands as an enduring symbol of folly, futility, pointlessness and stupidity, of generals being unthinking "donkeys". With a cast of hundreds and a huge canvas of places and events, bestselling military historian Nick Lloyd instead tells of an epic triumph against the odds. Far from being an arena of static, stale attrition - and despite mistakes and wrong turns along the way - the Western Front was a 'cauldron of war' that saw unprecedented innovation, adaptation and tactical development - since obscured by legends of mud and blood.
