Abstract

The article discuses the 1915 Battle of Loos, France, fought between British and German forces during World War I. Particular focus is given to the high casualties sustained by the British forces during the engagement and the use of poison gas. Archaeological investigations into the nature of battles along the war's Western Front are then applied to the Battle of Loos, with focus given to the construction and layout of trenches.
