Overview

A totally original, utterly engaging account of World War I—the first book to tell the story of the "war to end all wars" through the events of 100 key days between 1914 and 1918

The history of any war is more than a list of key battles, and Saul David shows vividly how World War I reached beyond the battlefield, touching upon events and lives which shaped the conduct and outcome of the conflict. Ranging from the young Adolf Hitler's reaction to the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, through a Zeppelin raid on Scarborough, the tragic dramas of Gallipoli, and the battlefields of the Western Front, Saul David brings people and events dramatically to life. This is a 360 degree portrait of a global conflict that stretched east from the shores of Britain to the marshes of Iraq, and south from the forests of Russia to the bush of German South East Africa. Throughout his gripping narrative we hear the voices of men and women both eminent and ordinary, some who were spectators on the Home Front, others who were deeply embroiled in epic battles that changed the world forever.
