In the words of Napoleon Bonaparte, ‘an army marches on its stomach’. Drawn from original sources published by the War Office before, during and after the First World War, this book gives an intriguing insight into life in the trenches and the rations and meals that the average Tommy subsisted upon, such as Maconochie stew, pea soup, brown stew and meat pie, and detailing many of the standard practices for military cookery during the First World War.
