Beschreibung

The origins of the First World War, both diplomatic and social, are discussed thoroughly examined. The reader is then taken through the major battles on the Eastern and Western fronts, and is given insight into the eventual Allied victory. The war at sea, on the home front, and in distant theaters is carefully examined. The war as it was experienced by the men in the trenches is also explored.
