A look at the Western Front of World War I, this title examines the many debates and questions the war has raised, exploring the intriguing "what if?" approach. As well as describing the Western Front and explaining events in the main text, the title consists of three different kinds of panels that appear throughout - the first examining events in question; the second examining key people (eg leaders); and the third following the "what if?" approach, in this instance, "what if Britain had stayed out of the war?" Split into thematically-based chapters, the text clearly and logically examines the many questions raised both at the time of the War, and since, with facts and opinions from leading historians.
