World War I

Front Cover
Dorling Kindersley, 2005 - World War, 1914-1918 - 319 pages
A dramatic account, evoking both the futility and the spirit of the 'Great War' and considering every aspect of the conflict - sea, land and on the home front. This book is a vivid analysis of the causes and forces behind the most destructive and costliest war ever witnessed. A vast range of original documentary and visual sources has been assembled to offer a unique perspective on all aspects of the war. Vivid personal impressions, letters home and haunting war poetry add a startling clarity to this incisive account and remind the reader of the most important aspect of 'the war to end all wars' - its appalling human cost.
