This is the most comprehensive chronology ever provided on the First World War and how it transformed the world politically, economically, socially, technologically, and culturally. Gerald Herman outlines the military actions and events of the Great War in chronological order, depicting the actions of the belligerents on the Western, Eastern, and Southern Fronts, in the colonies, on sea, and in the air, in the order in which they entered the war. His chronology juxtaposes these military events alongside international actions, showing how the events of the war led to treaties and declarations, conferences and meetings, and various kinds of informal contacts and results. He goes on to outline domestic events in terms of political, economic, social, cultural, and technological activities. A full index is also provided.
The chronology will be of great use to all libraries, institutions, and individuals seriously concerned with military history and modern world history.
