Description

A comprehensive overview of World War I, from its causes to the trench-scarred battlefields of the Western Front and final Armistice, this enhanced eBook tells the story of the 'War to end all Wars', uniquely illustrated with atmospheric contemporary film footage. The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the mud of Ypres and the flies and dust of Gallipoli are all covered in this fascinating history, which examines not only the Western Front but also the titanic struggle between Imperial Germany and Russia, and the often overlooked Mediterranean front. It also explores the dramatic innovations in weapons and techniques not least aircraft, tanks and dreaded poison gas – as stalemate led to invention. With a foreword by Professor Hew Strachan and video footage provided by Images of War, this book is a unique and informative look at the progress of the conflict that engulfed the world from 1914 to 1918.
