Other Theatres

Although attention has understandably focussed on the Western Front in the Great War, the conflict was a WORLD war fought across many different theatres. Battles raged from the deserts of the Arabian peninsular and the Holy Land, to the jungles of East Africa, the beaches of Gallipoli, and the snowy wastes of Russia. The Naval and Military Press stocks a full range of books covering all these theatres and more, from the exploits of Lawrence of Arabia to the German guerilla genius Colonel Lettow-Vorbeck who held down vastly superior Allied forces for the duration in German East Africa. If you think you know all there is to know about the all consuming western front, here is another world of warfare from the Great War waiting for you to explore.
