Tip on a new super WW1 Book!
Permalink Closed


I've just got the book "The 1917 Spring Offensives" by Yves Buffeataut (Yves can be seen in the French "Militaria" magazine), which I think just recently been translated into English.


And it is a SUPER book. It tells the stories of the three Allied Spring Offensives that year: Arras, Vimy Ridge and Chemin des Dames. Often they are discussed separately, but here they are shown in logical context.


It is a photo-book, coffee-table format, where the story is told with carefully picked, carefully annoted photographs - not just just generic "WW1 combat"-ones, but pics taken on the right spot on the right day, etc. Like it has been done in many WW2-books.


There is no artwork, but many of the pics are brand new to me, most of them very sharp, many showing hardware. The pics of Schneider CA.1's are super! Chemin des Dames was the ill-fated debut of the CA.1, but Buffetaut has found some amazing pics of these tanks, previously often shown in blurry pics, reproduced to death.


A longer review with pics will follow on the site here!


Get it!

Yes, lot's of fine photos of all types of guns! The quality of the pics are in general amazing. I guess the publishers went for the original negatives or some such.
