Description

This is a dynamic portrait of the world's greatest human conflict, now in paperback. "World War I" is a dramatic account of the Great War combining emotive photography with personal accounts to evoke both the futility and spirit of the conflict. Every aspect of World War I - sea, land and the home front - is explored. Re-live major campaigns through timelines, examine the decisions and military actions that decided each outcome and read compelling eyewitness accounts of soldiers and civilians that paint a vivid picture both of crucial battles and day-to-day routines. Plus, letters home and haunting war poetry highlight the most important aspect of "the war to end all wars", its appalling human cost. Also featuring a guide to the battlefield sites, memorials, cemeteries and visitor centres at Verdun, the Somme, Ypres and other locations commemorating the fallen, "World War I" is an exceptional guide to this important historical event.
