All you need to know about the Great War,
This review is from: 1914-1918: The History of the First World War (Paperback)
Excellent. Covers the lead in to the war, what happened during it and it's aftermath, including it's impact on subsequent history and the lead in to the second world war in particular.
Written at the strategic level rather than at the operations level it covers the grand themes and is basically in the following parts
1) The Approach to War
2) The War of Movemement
3) The Stalemate Period
4) The Breakding of the Deadlock
5) Peace and it's Consequences
Well worth the read. It told me lots I didn't already know and seemed very balanced.

To John Bland and many other reviewers -
"it's" means "it is" (or sometimes "it has").
"its" is a possessive personal pronoun.
In the review above, "it's" has been used three times. The apostrophe was incorrect in every case. All should have been "its" - its aftermath, its impact and its Consequences.
It's basic grammar, you know!
