World War I Summary

World War I: The Definitive Visual History from Sarajevo to Versailles by Consultant editor Richard Overy

Vividly portraying confrontation on land, sea, and in the skies, this history book is a brilliant and fascinating portrait of the Great War.

Sumptuously illustrated, this definitive account recounts in striking visual detail the lead-up, development, and course of the First World War. It also includes a directory of memorial sites to visit and the commemoration of the war a hundred years later.

Engaging narrative, detailed maps, historic photographs, and a rich collection of arms, equipment, and artefacts recreate the experience of titanic World War I battles such as Passchendaele, Gallipoli, the Somme, and Verdun, and the trench warfare that left an indelible mark on the collective memory of countries that lost a generation of young men.

World War I Reviews

As you'd expect from a Dorling Kindersley book, each page is beautifully laid out, with quotes and easy-to-follow fact boxes, and if ever a subject benefited from this treatment it is World War I. -- Michael Hodges * Event Magazine- The Mail on Sunday *
