Notes for Infantry Officers on Trench Warfare

This manual was composed using the British War Office notes and reports on the subject; some diagrams have been updated in accordance with intelligence received. It is the vade mecum of trench warfare as seen from the Brtitsh point of view. It covers both defence and attack, but the main part is concerned with the actual construction of trenches - trenches in which the war was fought for over three years. Although the trenches were dug, reinforced and camouflaged - producing the new phenomenon of "the empty battlefield" - the reader cannot avoid the conclusion that this element of the First World War had not progressed since the days of the castle siege.Recommended to all students of th First World War.
