Show Summary Details


This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the experiences of British soldiers during World War 1. The results indicate the each soldier reacted in his own and different way to the routine of army life, his theater of operations, and combat. It also suggests that those who served in the Egyptian Expeditionary Force (EEF) were more likely to survive the war than those who served in the British Expeditionary Force (BEF). This is because the western front was associated with huge casualties and stalemated trench warfare.

Keywords: British soldiers; World War 1; army life; EEF; BIF; casualties; trench warfare
