Published to coincide with the 90th anniversary of the armistice, this dramatic account of World War I combines emotive photography with personal accounts to evoke both the futility and spirit of the Great War. Every aspect of World War I – sea, land and the home front – are explored giving you a complete picture of the conflict. Re-live major campaigns through timelines and examine the decisions and military actions which decided each outcome. Compelling eyewitness accounts of soldiers and civilians paint a vivid picture both of crucial battles and day-to-day routines. Plus, letters home and haunting war poetry highlight the most important aspect of "the war to end all wars" – its appalling human cost. With a special anniversary guide to battlefield sites, memorials, cemeteries and visitor centres at Verdun, the Somme, Ypres and other locations commemorating the fallen of World War I.
