A Short History of the First World War (Pocket Essentials)

The First World War was without parallel, the first truly global conflict in which all of the earth's great powers participated. A Short History of the First World War tells the story of this cataclysmic event describing the background to the war, the international rivalries and conflicts of the previous decades that led to the nations of Europe forming virtual armed camps; the relentless build-up of military and naval hardware that characterised the early years of the twentieth century and the great figures that tried to prevent conflict or enthusiastically pushed for it.

A Short History of the First World War provides an excellent introduction and analysis of the events of this epochal conflict at a time when the world will be commemorating the hundredth anniversary of its outbreak and remembering the millions who lost their lives.

Soft cover, 160 pages.
