Description

Focusing on 1916, this work examines the actions of the principal commanders as they sought for a way to win the war and opted for the deadly notion of attrition: the notion that it was only possible to win by killing a vast quantity of soldiers. It points at the failure of high command to realize that until new offensive technology was invented to overcome the current bias of defensive technology, the death toll could only rise.
