David Cameron has pledged a 'truly national commemoration' in 2014 to remember the start of the Great War. This timely volume follows the course of the First World War from the assassination of the heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary in June 1914 to Germany's unconditional surrender in November 1918, and covers the Western and Eastern Fronts, the Italian campaign, the campaigns in the Mediterranean, Middle East and East Africa, as well as those at sea, in the air and on the home front. Supported by detailed full-page maps, boxed statistics, a timeline and a comprehensive index, this book provides a concise yet fact-filled account of what came to be called - wrongly, as it turned out - 'the war that will end all wars'.
