An integrated history of the war in which text, illustrations, graphics, maps, and timelines combine to give a unique portrait of the conflict, World War I provides an enthralling narrative that explains the causes of the war, the course the war followed, and what made it the most costly and destructive war in the world's history. From the animosity-filled years prior to 1914 through the Treaty of Versailles and from the European campaigns to naval battles, this is a dramatic overview of the world's greatest human conflict.

Review: World War I

User Review  - Mark Tuminello - Goodreads

As others have said, this is a great intro/summary of the events leading up to and during the first world war. What I think is missing is more of the human element. I suppose Dan Carlin has ruined me for dryer books like this. Read full review
