The First World War, Paperback / softback Book

The First World War Paperback / softback

Part of the European History in Perspective series


This is a timely new study of the Great War, a hundred years on.

The First World War not only provides an invaluable introduction to the topic but also deals with the changing perspectives of, and attitudes towards, the war and its place in national and international memories.

This clear and concise volume demonstrates the strategies of the combatants, the changing nature of warfare, the failures and achievements of military commanders and the impact of new weaponry.

It leads you through the debates surrounding the war, from its causes through to its consequences, looking at the subject from a twenty-first century perspective.

Rather than simply focusing on military history, Purdue pulls in strands of the diplomatic, political and economic dimensions of conflict, making this an ideal introduction to the First World War for both students and general readers.
