Discover the story of the world’s deadliest war. 

Combining expert historical insight with accounts of combatants and civilians, this important book offers a brilliant summary of the most important military, strategic, and political events across all theatres. 

The fighting is brought to life with profiles of key military and political figures, together with features on decisive campaigns, turning points, and technological innovations.
