Having a profound influence on the history of the twentieth century, the First World War left an intense legacy that continues to affect both those who lived through it and those who merely read about it in school. It was the first conflict in which airplanes, submarines, and tanks played a significant role and the first in which casualties on the battlefield outnumbered those from disease. It precipitated the collapse of the empires of Austria-Hungary and Turkey, and it promoted revolution in Russia. America's entry into the war and the part it played in the peace settlement signaled the arrival on the world stage of a new great power.
In this extensively illustrated book, an international team of experts explores the war in all its different aspects. From its causes to its consequences, from the strategy of the politicians to the tactics of the generals, the course of the war is charted, and its political and human consequences assessed. The legacy of 'the war to end wars'--in poetry and prose, in collective memory and political culture--is with us still, eighty years after that first Armistice Day. This remarkable book helps us understand that legacy.

A Look Inside The Oxford Illustrated History of the First World WarAfter the February revolution, Maria Botchkareva, who served in the tsarist army, was asked by Kerensky to form a “battalion of death,” made up exclusively of women. Women had formed nursing units for service with the British army in the Crimean War, and continued to do so until 1914. The women of America were urged to follow the militant example of Joan of Arc and buy War Savings Stamps. This American poster, produced shortly after the USA entered the war, was designed to encourage support for the allied war effort, and remind the public of what the French people were going through. About the Author:
Hew Strachan is Professor of Modern History at the University of Glasgow, and Life Fellow of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. He is the author of The Politics of the British Army (OUP, 1997).
