9780192853622: The First World War

This narrative history focuses on why World War I occurred, how it was fought, and why it had the consequences it did. It examines in turn, the state of Europe in 1914 and the outbreak of war; the onset of attrition in 1915 and the extension of the war; the collapse of Russia and the weakening and eventual surrender of the Central Powers; the making of peace; and the historical controversies surrounding the causes and conduct of war.

Review:

"An esteemed historian, Howard expertly and succinctly summarizes the Great War for the layperson.... Over the next decade, as we approach the centennial of this war, there will be a raft of books and documentaries. This volume is an excellent way to get a grounding in this momentous subject."--Forbes Magazine"The best concise introduction to and overview of World War I."--Military Heritage"Howard wraps up the entire war in 147 lucid pages.... For someone who is just starting to explore the war, Howard's book is the place to begin."--Weekly Standard"A concise, credible, lucid account of the causes, battles, politics, and consequences of the Great War. Howard compresses a mass of material, theory, and argument. His ambition, he states, is merely to introduce. But he does far more; he also engages and educates.... Demonstrates with clarity, craft, and precision that even in scholarship less can be more."--Kirkus Reviews
