The origins of the First World War, both diplomatic and social, are discussed thoroughly examined. The reader is then taken through the major battles on the Eastern and Western fronts, and is given insight into the eventual Allied victory. The war at sea, on the home front, and in distant theaters is carefully examined. The war as it was experienced by the men in the trenches is also explored.

Gerard J. De Groot is Senior Lecturer and Department Chair of Modern History, University of St. Andrews.

Review:


"That good things frequently come in small packages is well illustrated by De Groot's slim volume...of great use both to scholars seeking a reliable summary of the war and to those seeking a starting point for more detailed study..." --Choice

Book Description Palgrave MacMillan, United Kingdom, 2001. Paperback. Condition: New. 2000 ed. Language: English. Brand new Book. This book explains the First World War in a manner the lay person can understand, and the expert will still find intriguing. It covers a broad canvas, but does so with great economy. The origins of the war, both diplomatic and social, are discussed in a particularly illuminating fashion. The reader is then taken through the major battles on the Eastern and Western Fronts, and is in the process given insight into the eventual Allied victory. The war at sea, on the home front and in distant theatres is also carefully examined. There is, in addition, a worm's eye view of the conflict - the war as it was experienced by the men in the trenches.The book provides a wonderfully clear and sustaining introduction to a conflict usually mired in confusion. The strong narrative drive and lively style make it an easy and enjoyable read. Students will find the book a very good starting point for a study of the war, and lay readers will simply enjoy the clarity and drama it brings to a war which continues to intrigue and torment.
