Publisher Comments:

Commemorate the centenary of the first truly global conflict through images of 100 iconic items, from the gas mask, zeppelin, and Churchill's famous cigar to personal possessions that tell poignant stories of those who fought and suffered. Offering a unique perspective on “the war to end all wars,” these objects are accompanied by short essays, written by renowned World War I expert Gary Sheffield, that highlight their significance.
