Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As first lord of the admiralty and minister for war and air, Churchill stood resolute at the center of international affairs. In this classic account, he dramatically details how the tides of despair and triumph flowed and ebbed as the political and military leaders of the time navigated the dangerous currents of world conflict. andlt;BRandgt; Churchill vividly recounts the major campaigns that shaped the war: the furious attacks of the Marne, the naval maneuvers off Jutland, Verdun's "soul-stirring frenzy," and the surprising victory of Chemins des Dames. Here, too, he re-creates the dawn of modern warfare: the buzz of airplanes overhead, trench combat, artillery thunder, and the threat of chemical warfare. In Churchill's inimitable voice we hear how "the war to end all wars" instead gave birth to every war that would follow, including the current war in Iraq. Written with unprecedented flair and knowledge of the events, andlt;Iandgt;The World Crisisandlt;/Iandgt; remains the single greatest history of World War I, essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand the twentieth century.

Synopsis:

Now in trade paperback and repackaged for the first time in more than 75 years, this is Churchill's definitive history of the first World War. 48 maps, plans & diagrams.
