Overview


From the author of How to Survive Anything, Anywhere, an accessible overview of the history of the First World War, full of quotes, timelines, and information boxes
 

The World War I Story is the perfect pocket narrative of one of the largest conflicts in human history, richly illustrated with rare photographs and artwork. It traces the history of the Great War from June 28, 1914, through November 11, 1918, when Germany agreed to a ceasefire. It explains how World War I saw a significant change in the way wars were fought, as the cavalry charge and "staged" battles were consigned to history, making the way for a complex system of trenches, heavy artillery, machine-guns, and poison gas. The enormous impact of the war is also discussed, as entire generations of young men from towns and villages across Europe were wiped out, with the war changing the face of Europe forever, virtually destroying  the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires.
