During the First World War, a rich crop of legends sprouted from the battlefields and grew with such ferocity that many still manage to excite controversy today. This book is the first of its kind to examine the roots of those stories, looking at the reasons behind their creation and revealing the real truth. From the truth behind "Angel of Mons" to establishing if the German aircraft really dropped poisoned sweets in an attempt to kill British children, the author retells the story of each myth in this volume and examines the likely explanations.
