DESCRIPTION: The publisher has pulled out all the stops to make 
this a memorable Great War Centenary. This is the latest in one 
of the special series to commemorate WWI. The series reaches 
1917 in this book and lays out in an outstanding photographic 
presentation the year that many claim as the turning point in 
favour of the Allies – Highly Recommended.

After all the years of bloodshed, when it seemed that peace was 
a very distant vision, 1917 was the point where all the elements 
started to snap into place for the Allies, even though the Russian 
Revolution providing the opportunity for Germany to move its 
Eastern Armies West. The tank was at last coming into operation in 
numbers and offering a way to punch through the German trenches. 
In the air, the British were producing larger numbers of very 
effective fighters and bombers. At sea, the submarine had come 
of age, but was already meeting new convoy escorts with much more 
effective detection systems and weapons. Then to more than counter 
the loss of Russia, the Allies were joined by the United States that 
could pour fresh troops into battle and increase the flow of war 
materials and weapons.

The images really are excellent and include some colour images. 
Text is primarily in the form of concise captions and the result 
is first rate.
