By the time the First World War ended in 1918, eight million people had died in what had been perhaps the most apocalyptic episode the world had known. This book provides a concise history of 'the Great War', focusing on why it happened, how it was fought, and why it had the consequences it did.
An excellent over-view of the war. For the general reader. Very accessible. Suitable for teens as well as adults
