Have you ever wondered who fired the first British shot of World War One? Or who claimed the glory of downing the Red Baron? Who was the first WW1 soldier to receive the Victoria Cross? And what has Winnie the Pooh got to do with it all? Telling the stories of the battles, the aircraft, the weapons, the soldiers, the poets, the campaigns and the many heroes, Norman Ferguson delves deep into the history of the 'Great War'. Through anecdotes and statistics, and drawing on letters, speeches and official reports, this comprehensive miscellany is a compelling guide to the war that transformed and marked forever the course of twentieth-century history.
