Facing Armageddon, The First World War Experienced

In the two decades that have followed the first publication of this 
work, nothing has come to challenge it and this edition is therefore 
most welcome. It was a pioneering work and still is, presenting the 
scholarship of sixty four specialists and the real experiences of 
participants. It can fairly be regarded as a foundation work for 
anyone wishing to understand this epic conflict. Much Recommended.

Much Recommended.

Where most studies of WWI concentrate on particular campaigns, 
battles or technologies, this epic work provides a picture across the 
aspects of 'the war to end all wars' that proved only a prelude to 
another global conflict caused by German desires to dominate. It was 
the war that shaped the 20th Century and it can be said that an 
understanding of the 20th Century and the opening decades of the 21st 
Century is not possible without a solid understanding of the Great 
War.

This book is written clearly and concisely.  Even more than 900 pages 
is concise in respect of this gigantic conflict. It is the most 
comprehensive survey of the First World War that has ever been 
undertaken. It provides a series of fresh insights and many readers 
will find that they have to revise their opinions developed from 
other works. It is vividly illustrated and it will appeal to a wide 
readership, including professionals, historians, enthusiasts, 
students, scholars, and general readers.
