Book Description

8 May 2014 Imperial War Museum
One hundred years after the Austrians fired the first shots of war against the Serbs, the events of the First World War are remembered as some of the most devastating and traumatic in history. From the brutal carnage of the Somme, Arras, Passchendaele and Gallipoli to colonial campaigns in Africa, Mesopotamia and Palestine, from revolution in Russia to civil war in Ireland. The First World War Remembered brings the conflicts of 1914-1918 to life as never before. Gary Sheffield s authoritative text is supplemented by over 200 photographs and colour battle maps, as well as more than 30 painstakingly researched rare facsimile documents personal and unit war diaries, letters, secret plans and telegrams, orders, maps and posters that until now have filed or exhibited in museums and archives around the world, including: Kitchener s orders to the British Expeditionary Force sent to France in 1914, A letter describing the Christmas Truce of 1914, Douglas Haig s handwritten draft of his famous Back to the Wall order. Produced in association with Imperial War Museums, this is the ultimate interactive guide to The Great War. The DVD in this book contains a film entitled Our Empire s Fight for Freedom and a series of Veteran s first-hand accounts entitled We Fought on the Western Front.
