Using the original, graphic-led approach of the series, entries profile more than 90 of the key events during and surrounding the conflict - from the growing tensions between Europe's major powers to the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the German invasion of Belgium, the endless slaughter in the trenches, the American entry into the war, the Russian Revolution, the Armistice, and the creation of the League of Nations.

In this book, you can explore the following:

-Key milestones of the First World War – exploring the technologies, tactics, and turning points.

-Main theatres of the conflict and the experience of war – from civilian life to the horrors of gas attacks.

-Bold imagery and clear text with insightful and inspiring quotes from military leaders and historians

Offering a uniquely compelling, accessible, and immediate history of the war, The World War I Book shows how certain key battles, individual leaders, political and economic forces, and technological advances influenced the course of the conflict and the following decades.
