Paul Cornish has worked at the Imperial War Museum since 1989, chiefly as a curator in the Department of Exhibits, which cares for the museum's over 140,000 3D objects. He is IWM's firearms specialist and the author of 'Machine Guns and the Great War'. Between 2010 and 2014 Paul worked as Senior Curator on the First World War Galleries Project, and was a key part of the small team who created the content for IWM London's gound-breaking new First World War Galleries.
"The book examines the Great War from its causes through its aftermath, and the concise text is well-illustrated with both black and white period photographs and color images of the various artifacts that the IWM has been able to collect over the past century....For those who are interested in the Great War, the First World War Retold offers a concise and well-illustrated look at the conflict that swept away the old political and social order but unfortunately set the stage for an even more deadly conflict a generation later. The book is highly recommended, and reading it will probably convince some that they must journey to London to see the new IWM First World War Galleries that author Cornish helped to create."--Journal of America's Military Past
