During the Great War millions of men lived in the trenches of the Western Front. It is almost impossible for us to really understand how they coped in such a confined space with the constant terror of enemy attack. Now, Andy Robertshaw and a group of soldiers, archaeologists, and historians use official manuals and diaries to recreate their daily lives, answering the questions: How do you go to the loo? How do you wash your clothes? How clean can you really get in a trench? How easy is it to sleep? How do you keep yourself entertained? and many more. Hour-by-hour, the Tommy's day unfolds through stunning colour photographs in this groundbreaking experiment in Great War history.
