4.0 out of 5 stars An easy to read guide to all the events in World War 1, 1 Aug. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The First World War (Paperback)
Although I have read books on the individual campaigns of the Great War this was the first that I tackled on the whole conflict. It is an excellent starting point for any students of early 20th Century history and the author gives a real feel for the events and consequences. I was moved to tears by his descriptions of the Gallipoli battles and of the War cemeteries dotted around the landscape of Europe. The author doesn't expound theories but sticks to fact and it is that which shows the reader the horror of this war. The only complaints would be the lack of good maps and a bit disappointing in the pictures department.

I couldn't agree more about there being no good maps. I think its fundamental to the understanding of the book. I ended up watching a film about the battle of Tannenberg on utube which put it in a nutshell in 5 minutes.
