World War I: A Concise Military History

By Adrian Gilbert

World War I was one of the great turning points in history; it is with little exaggeration that the war can be seen as the catalyst to the formation of the modern world.

The combination of mass armies and a revolution in military technology ensured that the conflict would reach a destructiveness unknown in history, and with a geographical reach that saw what began as a remote Balkans conflict spread swiftly to encompass the globe.

The objective of World War I: A concise military history is to provide the reader with a concise yet authoritative account of this conflict, explaining its causes and consequences while focusing on the conduct of the war: the great battles on land and sea and the advent of a new kind of warfare in the skies.
