World War 1 - The Western Front To Verdun And The Somme

The Great War was the first global conflict of the industrial age and launched on a wave of patriotic fervor and optimism. With the commemoration of the 100 years of the start of the Great War, young people are getting engaged to tell their stories from photos and letters found in the attic, to spoken stories handed down. These projects are fascinating, appealing and rich in content and memories. To present this historical period this book narrates the history of World War 1 using short re-enactment and scenes built from our Minifig Battlefields military figures, the accessories, trenches, battlefields and weaponry used in the campaign. Military tactics before WW1 failed to keep pace with advances in technology. These advances, particularly on the Western Front in Europe, allowed the creation of strong defensive systems such as trenches, while barbed wire, artillery and machine guns made crossing the ground in between, 'no-mans-land', extremely difficult. It was into this that soldiers of the major powers on the Western Front, the Germans, the French and the British, found themselves placed in 1914, armed only with a rifle, bayonet and grenades. In this book, the Minifig Soldiers with high quality printed uniform designs, and equipped with a wide range of our custom 3D printed headgear, weapons and accessories enter the war. Together with field artillery and machine guns, trenches and battlefields, we chart the Great War from the beginning to Verdun and the Somme, from 1914 to 1916. The imaginery throughout this book has been largely recreated using our customised minifigs and accessories from photographs of the period to make it both historically faithful and engaging especially to enthusiasts and younger readers. Minifig Battlefields is on a mission to bring back the creativity of building with minifigs and other well-known brick brands, through learning and education. We are model makers specialising in design for 3D printing. Established to capture the passion of hobbyist, who collect model soldiers from across military campaigns, we provide customised military minifigs & accessories. 3D printing is the emerging technology that has the potential to enhance learning. Our Minifig Battlefields in education has inspired the children to compose a storyline; to augment their history learning; engage them in creative technology from 3D printing through to the media of animation, and to help them embrace the endless possibilities as future designers, engineers, artists, scientists, inventors and writers. We provide faithful, realistic diorama and scenery for use with our military minifigs, accessories, weapons and artillery to enable you to tell your story about WW1 a different way through animation and visual art.
