The story follows the soldiers into the Western Front trench lines where they begin to experience the war of attrition.

Now that the last WW I veteran has passed on, there is no one left to attest to the god-awful experience of life in the trenches.

Robert Hamilton's WORLD WAR ONE, LIFE IN THE TRENCHES, an English import, is a page photo-book illustrating the life of Allied infantrymen in the most brutal, soul-crushing of environments/5(9).

By chronicling every conceivable facet of life in the trenches, we get a much clearer picture of how terribly miserable, unique and personal the war truly was.
