The fighting that raged in the East during the First World War was every bit as fierce as that on the Western Front, but the titanic clashes between three towering empires--Russia, Austro-Hungary, and Germany--remains a comparatively unknown facet of the Great War.

With the one hundredth anniversary of the beginning of the war in 2014, Collision of Empires is a timely exposé of the bitter fighting on this forgotten front--a clash that would ultimately change the face of Europe forever. Drawing on firsthand accounts and detailed archival research, this is a dramatic retelling of the tumultuous events of the first year of the war, with the battles of Tannenberg and the Masurian Lakes in East Prussia followed by the Russo-Austrian clashes in Galicia and the failed German advance toward Warsaw.

About the Author:

Prit Buttar studied medicine before joining the British Army as a doctor. Since leaving the army he has worked as a GP, now based in Oxfordshire, UK. He is involved in medical politics, both at local and national level, and serves on the GP's Committee of the British Medical Association. He contributes regularly to the medical press and local and national media. He has written a novel, and his first work of military history, Battleground Prussia, received critical acclaim.

Review:

"Painstaking research and firsthand accounts propel the author's narrative of events that took place during the first year of the war a century ago. Buttar's splendid hardcover book puts an exclamation point on the reality that their collision in combat resulted in the downfalls of all three empires." --"Toy Soldier & Model Figure
"
"Based in archival research, this book will appeal to readers interested in World War I and especially the first months of battles on the Eastern Front." "--Library Journal"
..".a timely retelling of the early weeks of the war on the Eastern Front." --WWI Historical Association (www.ww1ha.org), October 6, 2014

"Insightful, drawn from numerous sources woven together into a narrative that is easy to follow even if one knows little about this theater of the war... The centennial of World War I is under way, and authors around the globe are writing many new books about the way. This book certainly ranks among the best of them." "--Military Heritag"e

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. One of the primary triggers of the outbreak of World War I was undoubtedly the myriad alliances and suspicions that existed between the Russian, German, and Austro-Hungarian empires in the early 20th century. Yet much of the actual fighting between these nations has been largely forgotten in the West. Driven by first-hand accounts and detailed archival research, Collision of Empires seeks to correct this imbalance. The first in a four-book series on the Eastern Front in World War I, Prit Buttar's dynamic retelling examines the tumultuous events of the first year of the war and reveals the chaos and destruction that reigned when three powerful empires collided. A war that was initially seen by all three powers as a welcome opportunity to address both internal and external issues would ultimately bring about the downfall of them all.
