Tannenberg 1914 by John Sweetman

Did Russia's sacrifice save Britain and France from defeat in 1914? Step back into the combat zone of World War One to watch a crucial moment in the struggle. Amazing visuals—color illustrations; contemporary photographs of the faces, weapons, and landscapes of war; and specially commissioned diagrams and cutting-edge computer cartography—will transport you there, bringing added dimension to the battlefield. In 1914, Russia's doomed Tsar, Nicholas II ordered his armies to invade German territory. They moved faster than expected, and panic stories of Cossacks running amok in Prussia led the German High Command to call back troops from France. However, the two Russian generals leading the attack hated each other and refused to communicate—ultimately helping the Germans annihilate them, but saving the rest of Europe at their own expense.
