  • The Men Who Planned the Warby Dr Paul Harris; Dr John Bourne

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2016; US$ 149.95

    During the Allied victory celebrations there were few who chose to raise a glass to the staff. The high cost of casualties endured by the British army tarnished the reputation of the military planners, which has yet to recover. This book examines the work and development of the staff of the British army during the First World War and its critical... more...

  • 'A Student in Arms'by Dr Ross Davies; Dr John Bourne

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 149.95

    Donald Hankey was a writer who saw himself as a ?student of human nature? and peacetime Edwardian Britain as a society at war with itself. Wounded in a murderous daylight infantry charge near Ypres, Hankey began sending despatches to The Spectator from hospital in 1915. Trench life, wrote Hankey, taught that ?the gentleman? is a type not a social... more...

  • Britain, Russia and the Road to the First World Warby Dr Marina Soroka; Dr John Bourne

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 149.95

    For much of the later nineteenth-century Britain regarded Russia as its main international rival, particularly as regarded the security of its colonial possessions in India. Yet, by 1907 Russia's political revolution, financial collapse and military defeat by Japan, transformed the situation, resulting in an Anglo-Russian rapprochement. As this book... more...

  • British Battle Planning in 1916 and the Battle of Fromellesby Dr Roger Lee; Dr John Bourne

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 124.95

    Despite the substantial output of revisionist scholarship over the last decade reappraising the performance of the British Army on the Western Front during the First World War, there still remains a stubborn perception that its commanders were incompetent, inflexible and unimaginative. Whilst much ink has been spilled vilifying or defending individual... more...

  • British Generalship during the Great Warby Dr Simon Robbins; Dr John Bourne

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 149.95

    Following the career of one relatively unknown First World War general, Lord Horne, this book adds to the growing literature that challenges long-held assumptions that the First World War was a senseless bloodbath conducted by unimaginative and incompetent generals. Instead it demonstrates that men like Horne developed new tactics and techniques to... more...

  • Early Trench Tactics in the French Armyby Dr Jonathan Krause; Dr John Bourne

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 149.95

    In the English-speaking world the First World War is all too often portrayed primarily as a conflict between Britain and Germany. The vast majority of books focus on the Anglo-German struggle, and ignore the dominant part played by the French, who for most of the war provided the bulk of the soldiers fighting against the central powers. As such, this... more...

  • The French Army's Tank Force and Armoured Warfare in the Great Warby Dr Tim Gale; Dr John Bourne

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 149.95

    Recent scholarship has challenged the assumption that military commanders during the First World War were inflexible, backward-looking and unwilling to exploit new technologies. Instead a very different picture is now emerging of armies desperately looking to a wide range of often untested and immature scientific and technological innovations to help... more...

  • German Literature and the First World War: The Anti-War Traditionby Professor Brian Murdoch; Dr John Bourne

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 134.95

    The period immediately following the end of the First World War witnessed an outpouring of artistic and literary creativity, as those that had lived through the war years sought to communicate their experiences and opinions. In Germany this manifested itself broadly into two camps, one condemning the war outright; the other condemning the defeat.... more...
