With the last few men who served in World War I now no longer with us and the 100th anniversary of the Armistice coming in November 2018, there is no better time to revaluate this controversial war and shed fresh light on the conflict. On the Western Front the fighting raged for nearly four and a half years, but this was only a part of what was truly a world war. From the Falkland Islands to the lakes of Africa, to the former German colonies in the Pacific, and the battles along the Isonzo river in Italy, the six volumes in the World War I series recreate the battles and campaigns that raged on land, at sea and in the air.
With the aid of over 300 black and white and colour photographs, many previously unpublished, World War I recreates the battles and campaigns that raged across the surface of the globe, on land, at sea and in the air. The text is complemented by full-colour maps that guide the reader through specific actions and campaigns.
