A dramatic account of 'The Great War' that combines emotive photography with personal accounts which evoke both the futility and the spirit of the Great War. Considering every aspect of the conflict - sea, land and on the home front - this momentous book is a vivid analysis of the causes and forces behind the most destructive and costliest war ever witnessed. A must for any millitary buff.
