Trench Warfare WWI (2) 1916-1918

Osprey's exam of trench struggle strategies in the course of international conflict I (1914-1918). The Allied try to holiday the stalemate of trench conflict through the 'big pushes' of 1916 resulted in vastly high priced battles of attrition. The Germans spoke back through constructing schemes of defence intensive anchored on concrete bunkers; the Allies, through subtle artillery strategies in aid of infantry attacks, and by means of the advent of the tank - in the beginning an accident-prone novelty, yet later a front-breaking weapon.
