Today the same menace confronts us, and although the Second Great War may not repeat in any measure or degree the Great War of 1914-1918, yet the thoughts and feelings, the hopes and fears, the terrors and pissions released by the last war will be released again and again during the course of this war. And it is with these thoughts and emotions in their relationship to the first World War that we are concerned in this particular work. No greater human document has been completed throughout the ages than this, the first and only authentic record of the out­standing events of 1914-1918— told by the men who were there! Thrilling, personal narratives of stirring deeds, human suffering and endurance, triumph and disaster, bring to life with startling realism the most dramatic and significant episodes wherever Britons fought in the last Great War.“ I Was There” is the key­note of every chapter. Only immediate personal experiences are narrated, by fighting men of all ranks and from all services. Thousands of Actual War Photographs HUNDREDS HITHERTO UNPUBLISHED The wonderlu: collection ol illustrations in“ I Was There includc some of the most remarkable action photographs of war ever taken.
