Описание

The First World War seems to have touched almost every family in Britain. Most people will have had a relative in their family tree that served in the armed forces between 1914 and 1918. Unfortunately this is no longer living memory but has slipped into recorded history. There is now resurgence in interest as the centenary is commemorated and many people realize they know so little about the war that was supposed to end all wars. How did it start? Why was Britain involved? Who were our allies? What were the major battles? The reader will find this concise book valuable in grasping many of the important facets of the war. Spread across different continents were many different armies fighting for one alliance or another. This book attempts to give a flavour of the scale of war giving facts about people, their battles and their weapons of war and of course the human tragedy.

Introduction

Until 1945 the First World War was referred to as the Great War. Great, that it was unprecedented in its intercontinental spread of fighting and where casualties were on an incomprehensive scale. What started as a local crisis with an assassination of an Archduke, nations soon moved to mobilise their armies like a chain of dominoes. A series of alliances developed this crisis into a terrible conflict which history had thus far never recorded. Initially army numbers swelled for many reasons, patriotism and adventure or simply for three regular meals a day. In Britain commentators reported it
