The best WWI overview I have read.
on 6 July 2015
My interest in WWI is decades long. I have read very many books. I have also reviewed a number of DK books. They usually fall into the category either of "overview" or of "photography". Either way, they tend to be information-lite and, despite the production quality, I have never before given one a 5* review.
Put simply, I have never read a better overview of WWI. Since this is a DK book, it means that this is also very heavily illustrated. Some of the illustrations are the well known, much used ones. Many are not. There is much that I could say, but it would all boil down to this - if you are looking for a neutral and comprehensive overview of WWI, this is the book you want.
It really is that good.
