The First World War was the founding event of the modern world, claiming the lives of over 16 million people across the glove and reshaping both countries and continents. Bases on years of research for IWM's ground-breaking new galleries to mark the centenary of the war, this book explains why the war started, why it continued for so long, how it was won and lost, and what happened afterwards. Fully illustrated with objects from IWM's unparalleled collections- from uniforms to posters, from photographs to world of art- the book presents events as they happened, through quotations from diaries, letters or reported conversations written or spoken within hours, days or weeks of the events they describe. Through these voices and objects- emotive, immediate, and sometimes surprising- the story of the war is told from a compelling new perspective, allowing us to bth understand and reflect upon the landmark conflict that still shapes our lives today.
