1915: The Death Of Innocence Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of 1915: The Death Of Innocence

The second in Lyn Macdonald's First World War series deals with the year 1915, when the war became entrenched in every sense of the word, when the new horrors of gas and flamethrowers made their dreadful appearance, when the stage was set for futile advances 'over the top'. Concentrates on the Western Front; the Gallipoli sections are no more than a useful introduction to that theatre, but nonetheless an essential guide to the 'forgotten' year on the Western Front.
