Overview
A brilliant, concise history of The War to End All Wars.
In the decade leading up to 1914, Europe had never known such prosperity. But the times were not good enough for the continent's most powerful nations: Germany wanted a navy that matched England's; Russia wanted an army as large and as disciplined as Germany's; the Austro-Hungarian Empire wanted more respect; and England felt compelled to teach the others about civilized relations. How terrible could a war be?
In this riveting account of a tragic episode in world history, author Jack Batten takes readers through a far bloodier conflict than mankind had ever before endured. Meet the soldiers who fought the deadly battles along the Western Front. Follow the trail of flying ace Billy Bishop as he tangles in the air with the Red Baron. Learn the strategy of Britain's Grand Fleet of warships as it heads into the biggest sea battle in history. Discover how civilians decoded virtually all the messages the Germans sent to their ships around the world.
From the Battle of the Somme, Gallipoli, Passchendale, and Vimy Ridge to the war's final battles, The War to End All Wars evokes the heroism and suffering of men from every country, whose stories changed the face of the world forever. With maps, index, and selected bibliography.
