Notes on the construction and equipment of trenches

This pamphlet aimed to give US officers some detailed fore-knowledge of trench systems and why they had developed. It is an important document in that it covers both the basic level - trench construction, dug-outs, wiring - but also the tactics involved in assaulting trenches, the occupation of craters, and the concept of defence in depth. Well illustrated and compiled from British notes on the subject.
