"Easy-to-read eye-opener into 'The War to End War'... Five stars out of five."
— #1 Hall of Fame reviewer
World War I battles are an unforgettable journey into military history.
Known as "The Great War" due to the massive loss of life, World War I marked a monumental shift in military campaigns, tactics, and strategies. Although the Allies — including the US military — eventually defeated the Axis powers, World War I would tragically set the stage for World War II.
"This book explains things very well. It covers the most important battles that most people don't know about. I highly recommend this book if you are learning about WW1." -- 5 stars, Kyle
Among the unforgettable battles covered:
• Battle of Tannenberg: Outnumbered German soldiers plan a sneak attack that destroys Russian forces and leads to the capture of 150,000 prisoners of war. • Battle of the Somme: Among military history’s worst follies, this battle ended with more than one million casualties—while achieving almost no gains for either side. • Battle of Cantigny: A little-known battle in which late-arriving and inexperienced American forces fought on the Western Front and proved ready to win.
Other chapters cover the fascinating figures of WWI, such as Lawrence of Arabia, Sergeant York, and theHarlem Hellfighters, along with world-altering events, such as the Russian Revolution of 1917.
