Almanac of World War IBook - 1998
World War I was the first modern war fought on a gigantic scale -- a stark, overwhelming, catastrophic series of events that killed millions, shattered nations, destroyed the old world order, and set much of the world's agenda for the twentieth century. The Almanac of World War I provides a day-by-day account of the action on all fronts and of the events surrounding the conflict, from the guns of August 1914 to the 1918 Armistice and its aftermath. Daily entries, topical descriptions, biographical sketches, maps, and illustrations combine to give a ready and succinct account of what was happening in each of the principal theaters of war.
