From Library Journal:
The latest entry in Macmillan's series of illustrated military histories is filled with its usual high-tech graphics and dramatic computerized maps. Even so, this is less a battlefield atlas than a popular reprise of the war's major battles and tactics for the general reader. The text is brief, but numerous boxes and explanatory drawings relate the combat history of World War I in a striking fashion. The choice of battles is excellent, and the sea and air phases also are covered. It is better balanced that its companion volume, John Macdonald's Great Battles of World War II (Macmillan, 1986), and is likewise an appealing survey work for public libraries.
