How could they continue - NBIH on WW1 soldiers

A great issue of New Books In History that you absolutely should not miss is Marshal Poe's recent interview with Alexander Watson. Watson did research on the British and German soldiers in World War I and tried to find an answer to the eternal question how they could continue to fight as longs as they did under the horrible circumstances as they were. This also leads to an answer to the question why they quit fighting when they did. And here Watson claims to present a new answer than what is commonly held to be the case.
