Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Follow the conflict of World War I from 1914-1918 through a unique collection of historical maps, expert commentary, and photographs
 
More than 150 maps, some previously unpublished, are used here to demonstrate how World War I was fought around the world. Small scale maps show country boundaries and occupied territories, large-scale maps cover the key battles and offensives on all fronts of the war, and trench maps show detailed positions of the front line. Maps from newspapers are also included, as well as battle planning maps and propaganda. Key offensives covered include the Battles of the Marne and Ypres; Tannenberg and the Eastern Front; Verdun and the Somme; the Gallipoli Campaign; Battle of Jutland; the Advances to Jerusalem, Damascus, and Baghdad; Vimy Ridge and Passchendaele; and German 1918 offensives and Allied counter-offensives. Along with the maps, key historical events are described, giving an illustrated history of the war from an expert historian.
