Summary

It was the war to end all wars, a conflict without precedent in which millions perished—and it was also one of the first conflagrations captured comprehensively in photographs. These carefully selected images capture World War One in all its haunting detail. From the mud of Flanders to the beaches of Gallipoli, all the great battles, all the theaters of operations, and all the nationalities involved are commemorated. It's an intensely moving testament to the patriotism and innocence of the men and women who volunteered, the bloody reality of trench warfare on the Western Front, the terror of gas and mechanized weaponry, the sea battles around the globe, and the ultimate sacrifice of a generation. Divided year by year, each chapter opens with a comprehensive overview of the main events and developments.
