Overview

World War I by Nicola Barber

Why was World War I so devastating, and how had Europe become so divided into armed camps? Why did the United States get involved, and what was its role in the war?

The Living Through series relates the overall chronology of major wars and shows their impact on everyday lives. What have been the main events, and who were the significant leaders and participants in the war? What was the strategic and technological nature of the conflicts, what happened to people on both sides, and why are the consequences of these wars still felt today?
