Almanac of World War I
University Press of Kentucky, 5 Μαρ 2004 - 336 σελίδες
World War I was the first modern war fought on a gigantic scale - a catastrophic series of events that killed millions, shattered nations, destroyed the old world order, and set much of the world's agenda for the twentieth century. This almanac provides an account of the action of all fronts and of the events surrounding the conflict, from the guns of August 1914 to the November 1918 Armistice and its troubled aftermath. Daily entries, topical descriptions, biographical sketches, maps, and illustrations combine to give a ready and succinct account of the events in each of the principal theaters of war.
