World War One was the cause catalyst trigger and accelerator of revolutionary change on an unprecedented scale This is an indispensable new introduction to the global history of the conflict and its revolutionary conseuences from the war's origins to the making of peace and across all of its theatres including the I thought Barbara Tuchman s The Guns of August was great and I wanted to know about the four years that followed This is a detailed comprehensive yet easily accessible chronology of the war in its entirety Still like The Guns of August depressing as hell but informative the most unfortunate part is how the conflicts that started this war over a hundred years ago still largely exist Some of the countries are different all of the players are different but it is as if the human race never learns Highly recommend

REVIEW World War One

Home fronts and the war at sea Lawrence Sondhaus sets out a new framework for understanding key themes such as the war aims which inspired the belligerents the technological developments that made the war so deadly for those in uniform and the revolutionary pressures that led to the collapse of the Romanov Habsbu It s an impressive work but I would skip the batallions numbers and details to favour a strategical view on the war However it s amazing to see how much our contemporary problems were born a century ago It seems like that war has not ended yet
