Overview
-

This book presents the daily lives of ordinary German soldier from 1914 to 1918, through the "Michel" (Deutscher Michel), the archetype of the soldier, national personification of the German people, the symbol of the Patriotic Union. We discover his life, his material environment, joys, sorrows, his way of eating, expression, his relationship with the hierarchy, the period of classes, the rise in the forehead, life on the front line and behind the front, fighting, the allocation in assault troops, care in the hospital ... the transformation of uniforms and equipment as the war continued. The context of the times is particularly well made with extracts of popular songs and a multitude of anecdotes and specific information that make this book a total innovation. This study is particularly enhanced by a rich iconography that highlights each of the treated areas.
