    London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2005. Dark blue boards, pp 574 + plates; index. Ink name at front, else fine in fine jacket. "By the end of the war, over 8.5 million men had been recruited by Britain and the average field strength of its armies was 3.3 million men. For the first time, Britain found itself obliged to field land forces equal to those of its Continental neighbours. Moreover, however uncertain its beginnings, by 1918 this was an army that had become the most effective fighting force on the Western Front. In this exceptional account of the administration of the British Army in the First World War, Messenger charts how this unprecedented new force was raised, trained and deployed. He looks in detail at the problems of recruitment and training and at the difficulties of integrating regular troops with volunteers, and, later, conscripted men. The central question of manpower, both on the home front and in the trenches, above all after the first enthusiastic flood of volunteers had dried up, is examined in illuminating depth. He decribes how morale was sustained among men wholly unused to military life but fighting a war in which death was dealt out on an industrial scale. He looks, too, at the role of women, who for the first time played a significant role in a major conflict. Discipline, courts martial, the treatment of the wounded, the provision of clothing, the huge difficulties of feeding such a vast force, the awarding of medals and other honours, officer selection and the training of the Staff are just some of the themes in this magisterial new survey of the organization of Britain's Army in the First World War." 1.5 kg; Octavo 0297846957
