£14.99 £3.99

Captain Otto Schwink was a serving officer in the German Imperial Army during the Great War. As a result of his close involvement in the 1914 campaign and his exceptional writing ability, he was selected by the General Staff to produce an official publication dealing with the events of 1914 from the German perspective, which was destined to become one of the first examples of wartime propaganda, in book form, from the German perspective. This text is now accompanied by a selection of images that depict the troops, officers, supporting artillery, High Command and the events of the 1914 Christmas truce.
