A fascinating portrait of the people, places, events, conflicts, and impact of the Great War, released to coincide with the centennial of the war's end.
The course of the First World War, from Sarajevo to Versailles, is revealed in striking visual detail. Engaging narrative, detailed maps, historic photographs, and a rich collection of arms, equipment, and artifacts re-create the experience of titanic World War I battles such as Gallipoli, the Somme, and Verdun, and the trench warfare that left an indelible mark on the collective memory of countries that lost a generation of young men. Global coverage charts the development of the conflict from every perspective, while before-and-after sidebars set key episodes into wider historical context. "Eyewitness" feature spreads present direct accounts from soldiers and civilians, bringing home the human toll of "the war to end all wars."

Produced in association with the Smithsonian Institution.
