A look back at one of the seminal, and deadliest, events of the twentieth century: World War I. The savagery of the fighting, the appalling conditions endured by the soldiers, and the sheer scale of the carnage have seared images of World War 1 into the public memory. This book captures the wide sweep of the conflict, describing the development of the fighting from 1914–1918, and spotlighting obscure but important actions, major battles, and the soldiers who risked their lives. Along with the most up-to-date research, The First World War Remembered includes an array of facsimile memorabilia (letters, newspaper reports, military orders, treaties) plus a DVD with a documentary film and firsthand accounts.
