A Visit to Three Fronts (audio product)

MP3 File

FNH Audio presents an unabridged reading of Arthur Conan Doyle's non-fiction book, "A Visit to Three Fronts".

Written in 1916 during the peak of the first world war this book follows Mr Doyle as he visits first the British, Italian and finally the French sectors of the front. He meets with everyone from the highest national generals to the lowliest of front line troopers.

Although a work that can be classified as mid-war propaganda, it does offer some very interesting insights into the British mindset at this time of the war. The text reveals that the Italians were at this point of the war on the back foot and under pressure from the British public to perform better.  It's also fascinating to realise that the British "stiff upper lip" was alive and well as shown when the author feels that he shouldn't show any emotion in front of foreigners. It also includes an interesting anecdote where a French general seems to think Sherlock Holmes is a real person.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
