They Shall Not Pass
I'm reading this now and it is one of those books that you can't put down. I've wanted to do something with the new range of 15mm late war French from Peter Pig since they came out, so this book is a potential source of inspiration. I also have a family angle on this too, as my wife's great grandfather was killed in 1914 in the Race to the Sea and many other relatives fought at Verdun in 1916. It's still an emotive issue in Brittany as the Bretons were treated as cannon fodder by the French high command, more so than other units and with the inevitable results.
