This volume examines how, in the face of the devastating firepower advantages that modern weapons offered the Germans, the British army developed the means to reclaim the offense and break the stalemate of the western front to defeat their enemy.MoreThis volume examines how, in the face of the devastating firepower advantages that modern weapons offered the Germans, the British army developed the means to reclaim the offense and break the stalemate of the western front to defeat their enemy.

Within this context, Albert Palazzo demonstrates the importance of gas warfare to Britains tactical success and argues that it was a much more efficient weapon than past historians have suggested. Despite British notions of tradition, gentlemanly conduct, and fair fighting, the high command realized that the war was to be won by employing technologies and techniques to counteract the defensive advantages their well-fortified and entrenched opponent enjoyed on the western front.
