The Great War by John Terraine – Good 2nd hand copy
From the fatal shots which killed the Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo on June 28th 1914 to the Armistice at 11 am on the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918, this masterly account traces the progress of the First World War in fifteen chapters from the pen of the greatest historian of the conflict. In this highly readable and wide-ranging history of the Great War, the author examines it in its entirety, from the Battle of Tannenburg to Gallipoli, from East Africa to the Western Front. Naval battles and air power receive their fare share of attention, making this perhaps the best single-volume history of the first mechanised war of the industrial age that left at least 12 million dead and twice as many maimed.
