BACK COVER BLURB:
In The Evolution of Victory Andy Simpson takes each of the main battles, or phases of operations, in France and Flanders 1914-1918 and explains why they came about, how they were planned and executed, what lessons they taught the commanders and the evolution of tactics and technology which led to eventual Allied victory.
His historical analysis weaves together may factors that influenced the course of the war on the Western Front, from political considerations down to constraints of manpower and material, and the inevitable built-in delays in the struggle at all levels to make the best use of the new technology becoming available.

The book employs the highly successful formula of the same author’s Hot Blood and Cold Steel to portray the experience of battle through the words of participants and show how they reacted to changing technology and conditions.
The book is thus a brand new approach to the operational history of the war, from the revisionist viewpoint, presenting in a concise way all aspects of each battle, from conception to execution. It incorporates some of the most recent thinking on Great War tactics and is the first new overview of the Western Front to appear in for many years.
