Norman gave this work the title 'Aspects of the Great War 1914 - 1918' which is inscribed on the drawing to cover all the separate aspects of the war from the recruitment office, training of the troops, politicians, generals etc. All the separate features were first worked on as individual sketches and only when Norman was satisfied would he replicate the sketch on to the finished work, however,

Norman worked on this drawing for many years before eventually deciding he couldn't take it further, the work involved to complete the trenches on the right of the drawing was taking the strain and if truth be known, every time Norman picked up the work to complete it, bad memories would return. He eventually sold the drawing and it is now in a private collection

Why 'Aspects of the Great War' ?

World War I was a global conflict centered in Europe that began on 28 July 1914 and lasted until 11 November 1918. From the time of its occurrence it was called simply the World War or the Great War. It was only after the second World War that it was referred to as World War 1
