WWI


The horrors and sacrifices of the First World War are deeply engrained in the national psyche - as we commemorate the centenary its echoes sound louder than ever. The four years between 1914 – 1918 irrevocably changed the lives of its participants and each subsequent generation, right up to the present day. One hundred years later and the themes are still familiar – unrest in the Balkans, unification of Europe, the rise and fall of nation states.

Pen & Sword Books have an unrivalled list of Great War titles covering the tragic yet often glorious events of ‘the war to end all wars’. These describe, often in the words of participants, combat on the ground, in the trenches, as well as in the air and at sea. We have a superb range battlefield guide books, memoirs and descriptive historical accounts by expert authors. Our comprehensive list of Great War titles provide an excellent insight into this most complex, and affecting, of conflicts.



A well illustrated and important book, particularly if you're researching men who served with these units during the First World War.

The book gives a good picture of the raw but also ‘romantic’ lives of the pilots at that time. There are also variants of this book for the area around Ypres, Arras and Cambrai.
