Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 075095843X, Paperback)

Focusing on transportation and supply, researcher Sandra Gittins presents a compelling photographic study of the railways and motor and water transport behind the trenches in World War I, and the vast numbers of British Expeditionary Force personnel who built, maintained, and ran them, as well as those who worked to ensure supplies of all descriptions were stored, ordered, and distributed. In this area of France and Flanders, troops, equipment, guns, and tanks were constantly transported to and fro, with the wounded frequently being evacuated. Depots for fuel and water were established, plus garages for vehicle repair and maintenance. This fascinating book also delves into the roles women held, the distribution of food and post, and many other aspects of life and work in the area.
