Between the Coast and the Western Front is a compelling look behind the scenes, focusing on transportation and supply. This fully illustrated book shows the work of the railways, motor and water transport, and the vast numbers of British Expeditionary Force personnel who built, maintained and ran them, also looking at those who worked to ensure supplies of all descriptions were stored, ordered and distributed. In this area of France and Flanders troops, equipment, guns and tanks were constantly transported to and fro, with the wounded frequently being evacuated, their injuries being aggravated by travelling on uneven roads or facing the threat of shelling and air attacks. Depots for fuel and water were established, plus garages for vehicle repair and maintenance. This fascinating photographic book delves into the vital roles women held, the distribution of food and post, and many other aspects of life and work in the area.
