With this year marking the centenary of the First World War, the heroic efforts of those who experienced it are brought to the fore. The lives of so many people were changed forever after Britain officially declared war on Germany at 11pm on 4 August 1914.
Before the month was out, the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) had crossed the Channel to fight in a conflict that was inaccurately predicted to be over by Christmas. However, the soldiers of the British army and those of the German army clashed in a series of epic battles which, by winter, had evolved into a stalemate that lasted four years. Through diary entries, memoirs, recollections and research, much can be learned about the first months of the war and the battles leading up to the surprising Christmas truce: the Battle of and the Retreat from Mons, the Battle of Marne, the First Battle of Aisne, Flanders, the First Battle of Ypres and many more.
