The Great War is a landmark history that firmly places the First World War in the context of imperialism. Set to overturn conventional accounts of what happened during this, the first truly international conflict, it extends the study of the First World War beyond the confines of Europe and the Western Front.

By recounting the experiences of people from the colonies especially those brought into the war effort either as volunteers or through conscription, John Morrow's magisterial work also unveils the impact of the war in Asia, India and Africa.

From the origins of World War One to its bloody (and largely unknown) aftermath, The Great War is distinguished by its long chronological coverage, first person battle and home front accounts, its pan European and global emphasis and the integration of cultural considerations with political.

About the Author:

John H. Morrow, Jr., is Franklin Professor of History at the University of Georgia. He specializes in the history of modern Europe and warfare and in the study of warfare and society. He has written three books on early airpower and is completing a study of an African American regiment in the First World War.

Review:

'Morrow is an excellent military historian who follows quite strictly the war's events on the various fronts, revealing the colonial effort in troops and economics.' - Prof. Annette Becker, The Times Educational Supplement
