The Cambridge History of the First World War is a comprehensive, three-volume work which provides an authoritative account of the military, political, social, economic and cultural history of the Great War. Reflecting the very latest research in the field, the volumes provide a comprehensive guide to the course of the war and of how the dynamics of conflict unfolded throughout the world. Volume 1 surveys the military history showing the brutal realities of a global war among industrialized powers, whilst Volumes 2 and 3 explore the social, economic, cultural and political challenges that the war presented to politicians, industrialists, soldiers and civilians. Written by a team of leading international historians, the volumes together reveal the ways in which the war transcended the boundaries of Europe to subsequently transform the Middle East, Africa, Asia and the Americas just as much as Europe itself.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The Cambridge History of the First World War not only deserves to find a place in every university and school, but also on the shelves of anyone with an interest in the war that was supposed to end all wars. Utterly absorbing, endlessly fascinating, absolutely essential.' History of War
'... formidably comprehensive ...' The Bookseller
'... an astonishing achievement. It is a comprehensive, insightful and challenging collection, beautifully produced.' Richard Grayson, Reviews in History (history.ac.uk/reviews)
'The single most important piece of collective scholarship to emerge from the centenary.' BBC History Magazine
'The global perspective on the war, represented in these volumes, adds further layers of complexity to our understanding of this foundational moment in modern history. The conjunction of early twentieth-century patterns of globalization and industrialized great power war was singular, distinguishing it from earlier European conflicts fought across the globe and the Second World War, which followed the collapse of globalization in the 1930s.' William Mulligan, European History Quarterly
