This is a fantastic introduction to World War I. But know what it is: a quick, easy read that contains a cursory explanation of the causes for the war and details all the major players, battles and the Armistice. With this under your belt, you'll know whether you want to dive deeper into the subject. Additionally, if interested in World War II, this provides a quick background for the climate that led to the rise of Hitler and the Third Reich.

Good but to brief.

It is well written but to brief for a complicated period in history.The book is still of great value for those who have no knowledge of this time which still impacts our lives today.

    GREAT!

    Interesting book on World War 1. I'm at 9 year old. I dont have a account. I am using my moms. Anyways, I love the book. I will probably get to skip grades and be the best doctor ever! Thank you so much for writing this. Thank you and thank you. P.S. is there a World War 3? Or are we doing it now? I feel like I am dumb now..

    I liked it. It's exactly what it says it is; a short overview of the major events and players of WWI. It's a good primer for someone who just wants to familiarize themselves with the basics before diving into something more in-depth or something set during that time period. I'm curious to see what some of the others in the series are like.

    The eBook was formatted well with only one noticeable spelling error.
