A History of the Great War, Volume 3 (Barnes & Noble Digital Library) by John Buchan
Buchan covered World War I for TheTimes of London, as well as working for Britain’s War Propaganda Bureau. Collected here are his observations and analysis. This third volume begins by focusing on the British lines in the West, the continuation of the Battle of Verdun, the Russian Coup d’Etat, America’s entrance into the war, and much more—finishing with the third battle of Ypres in 1917.
John Buchan (1875-1940), first Baron Tweedsmuir, was a Scottish novelist and member of Parliament, who served as the Governor General of Canada. He wrote many novels as well as books on politics, history, biography, and criticism. But he is best known for his suspense novel The Thirty-Nine Steps, made into a film by Alfred Hitchcock.
