Secret Warriorsby Taylor Downing

The cultural memory of The Great War is one of incredible human slaughter as vast columns of young men charged from trenches across No Man’s Land. Taylor Downing does not contradict this understanding, but rather supplements that portrait. Great Britain actually assembled the finest minds in the arts and sciences to revolutionize both war and peace in aviation, intelligence, engineering, chemistry, medicine, and propaganda during the War. The names of those involved will amaze the reader.
