Description: It can easily be argued that the First World War was the first “total war” in human history. Using examples from the book you have chosen, the poems by “war poets” and the personal accounts of the war, describe the experiences of soldiers during the war. Objective: How were these men affected by the conditions and nature of warfare on the Western Front—what did the “lost generation” actually lose? You may want to consider the physical and psychological impact of the war on the men who served. You may also want to review this brief movie WW1 Combat in Colour, 1914-1918 (Links to an external site.) to help you get started. Please note that this source should not be referenced in your paper.
