World War I

H.P. Willmott

Excellent view of WWI
By Drogilon

Beautifully illustrated, and well written. The first chapter called "the Road to War" takes you from 1878 to 1914 and describes the tensions in Europe that lead to war. The rest of the book covers 1914 through 1923. It describes the war on all fronts including what was happening in the Middle East and Russia. The photos are stunning and include pictures of a line of Mark V tanks, the evolution of the machine gun, Russian soldiers caught in barbed wire, etc. Many maps are included showing troop movements and battles. I didn't notice any of the typos mentioned by the previous reviewer. This is a great book for anyone wanting an complete overview of World War I and I highly recommend it.
