Book Overview

Discover the misery of life in the trenches -- and how the Great War devastated Europe. Here is an original and exciting guide to the grim challenge of life or death on the Western Front. Devastating first-hand reports and contemporary photographs of the battles that slaughtered millions, together with a clear account of how nation upon nation sent their men to join the carnage, combine to present a dramatic eyewitness view of this most terrible war. See the bullet-riddled car of the heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary, everyday life in the dugout, sappers mining tunnels beneath the enemy, and Mata Hari learning the art of spying. Learn how people avoided gas attacks, when periscopes were used, what soldiers wrote home to their sweethearts and mothers, the best way to use a tank, how troops flattened a hillside, and the meaning of Armistice Day. Discover how it felt to go over the top, what happened to all the bodies, how people dealt with shell shock, why war led to revolution, and much, much more.

   One Serbian Boi Changed The World.
The book tells the entire story of World War I from beginning to end, including the infamous Allied bombing of German cities. Sadly, the World War 1 exhibit in Smithsonian is very small to little of mention of the war. The book is full of detailed information about Dr. Abraham's life and times. It's great to be back home, said 1010 WINS radio host Ernie Fletcher.

   Lots of Pictures
There are lots of pictures of Diana. This is more of a book where you skim through it, looking for interesting details, he said. If you are looking for a chronological, detailed account of WWI, I would not recommend that you go there.

   Fascinating!
I bought this for my boyfriend's birthday along with the other two volumes. Both are beautiful, informative and fascinating reads.

   Very nice book about the First World War.
Very nice, very handsome reference book for World War I. Well-constructed materials used in this book, clear and descriptive pictures of battles, individuals, places which were important to understanding "The Great War" and its aftermath.

   Large coffee table size book!
Everything you need to know and then some. Very nice customer service, said Paul. Large and heavy, a good price for something so knowledgeable.

   Must have for World War I History Enthusiasts!
Just received and going through the large book, McCartney said. It is a very beautiful book commemorating the 100th anniversary and filled with a lot of vibrant colored and black-white photos, said Vazzi. Just glancing through at this point, there is a lot of background on the war that frankly I never knew about. New York Times best-selling novelist Michael Ondaatje's hardback book is now available at a great price.

   WWI
The only flaw was that the printer was too small to see the cover. It was a present that was purchased for Kristen by her family earlier this year. Great coffee book.

   Don’t overlook this one! Perfection!
Incredible, awesome, Nicolas Cage. Even at my age, ahem, I am not as knowledgeable of the War to End all Wars as I would like to be. This is a standard to attain, quality with one word all the way! The pictures recall the many views of war with intense emotion, along with clear and concise discriptions and narratives.

   All you need to know about the Great War
The First World War is often overshadowed by the Second World War and future conflicts such as Vietnam and Afghanistan but this should not diminish the fact that it is far more interesting than those earlier wars. The impact of Ww1 created the modern world we live in today, it impact can still be felt 100 years later.
