Chronology of the Great War, 1914-1918 Summary


Chronology of the Great War, 1914-1918 by Lord Edward Gleichen

A remarkable day-by-day chronology covering 1,651 days of warfare Covers events in all theatres Based on French, British, German and Italian sources Chronology of the Great War presents a day-by-day, theatre-by-theatre record of events between the shooting of Archduke Franz Ferdinand on 28 June 1914 and the landing of British troops at Riga on 29 December 1918. Clear and concise entries chart the sweeping events of World War I and allow the reader to follow the progress of particular battles, campaigns and political machinations. The chronology itself is fully cross-referenced and supported by a wealth of detailed data Pdrawn from British, German, French and Italian sources Pon casualties, prisoners of war, expenditure, air raids and losses in shipping. Each theatre of the war is covered in depth and entries on the Western Front, Eastern Front, Southern Front (Italy and the Balkans), Asia, Africa and naval operations are presented side-by-side for ease of comparison. The overall effect of this remarkable presentation is to show the diversity and breadth of a conflict too long characterised by the sluggish stalemate of trench warfare. The Chronology of the Great War was first published in three volumes between 1918 and 1920. It was compiled by the British Ministry of Information, under the editorship of Lord Edward Gleichen.
