Objects are the way in which we can touch the past, and they play a living role in history today. Through them, we can understand the experience of men and women during the First World War. Surviving objects from the Great War are diverse: posters and ephemera, personal mementos and military artefacts, archaeological finds and public monuments, deadly weapons and tanks, aircraft and ships. Showcased in this best-selling book these fascinating objects bring a fresh perspective to the tragedy and triumph of the `war to end all wars' across the world.
