Although World War I has been called "the War to End All Wars," that unfortunately hasn't been the case. However, the so-called Great War did change everything. Millions of people died from battle, illness, and other causes related to the war, and the destruction and death it caused was unprecedented. This absorbing book shows how the war started, as well as its long-standing repercussions. It also provides timelines for the overall war as well as chapter by chapter, and historical photographs give even more context.
