The World War I Book

Big Ideas Simply Explained




THE "WAR TO END ALL WARS" – EPISODE BY EPISODE

Discover the key battles, tactics, technologies and turning points of the First World War - the epic conflict that was supposed to be "the war to end all wars".

Combining authoritative, exciting text and bold explanatory graphics The World War I Book explores the historical background to the war, its causes, all of key events across the major theatres of conflict, and its aftermath.

Using the original, graphic-led approach of the series, entries profile more than 90 of the key events during and surrounding the conflict - from the growing tensions between Europe's major powers to the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the German invasion of Belgium, the endless slaughter in the trenches, the American entry into the war, the Russian Revolution, the Armistice, and the creation of the League of Nations.

Offering a uniquely compelling, accessible, and immediate history of the war, The World War I Book shows how certain key battles, individual leaders, political and economic forces, and technological advances influenced the course of the conflict, and the decades that followed.
