Publisher Comments:

It will soon be close to a century since the outbreak of the First World War, yet as military historian Hew Strachan argues in this brilliant and authoritative one-volume history, the legacy of the ?war to end all wars? is with us still. Written in crisp, compelling prose and enlivened with vivid photographs?including early color photographs?The First World War re-creates this world-altering conflict both on and off the battlefield. Strachan offers a fresh and truly global perspective on how the Great War not only redrew the map of the world but also set in motion the most dangerous conflicts of today, especially in such hot spots as the Middle East and the Balkans. Deeply learned and powerfully written, The First World War is a landmark work of contemporary history.

Synopsis:

A brilliant and penetrating new history of the First World War, by the Chichele Professor of the History of War at Oxford, one of the world's foremost experts on the conflict.
