The First World War
The First World War. Author Keith Robbins
The tragic slaughter of the trencehs is imprinted on modern memory, but it is more difficult to grasp the wider extent and significance of the First World War. This book gives a clear chronological account of the campaigns on the Western and Eastern Fronts and then moves on to investigate areas that many studies ignore – the war poets, the diplomacy of war-aims and peace moves, logistics, and ‘the experience of the war’.
