This month we have 5 copies of The First World War in 100 Objects by Peter Doyle to be won.
Surviving objects from the First World War are diverse: posters and ephemera, personal mementos and military artefacts, archaeological finds and public monuments, deadly weapons and tanks, aircraft, and ships. From the iconic to the intimate, objects such as the football of Loos, a Mk I tank, a German Pickelhaube, Canadian cap badges, the ‘Butcher’ bayonet, a trench coat, a soldier’s Christmas gift, and a death card. These objects – time capsules, mute witnesses – bring a fresh perspective to the tragedy and triumph of the ‘war to end all wars’.
