Known as "The Great War" because of its massive loss of life, WWI marked a monumental shift in military campaigns, leadership, tactics, and strategies. The Allies — with the help of the US military — eventually defeated the Axis powers, but World War I also 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
