Dictionary of military slang
This book was first published in 1925 and was intended to be a dictionary of first world war slang. In the 1920s, “the war to end all wars” was still fresh in everyone’s minds and the authors were commissioned to capture the combatants’ sayings and expressions.

Interestingly, although written nearly fifteen years before the next global conflict, the term “first world war” appears. Colonel Repington named his published history of the war as such. He did not want to flatter “the Boche” by calling it the “German War” so instead chose what became the prescient or perhaps pessimistic “first world war”.
