World War I was the greatest cataclysm Europe had ever known, directly involving 61 million troops from 16 nations. The struggle mobilized manpower from home, troops from the colonies abroad, and--in most countries-women as well as men.

GovernmentsMoreWorld War I was the greatest cataclysm Europe had ever known, directly involving 61 million troops from 16 nations. The struggle mobilized manpower from home, troops from the colonies abroad, and--in most countries-women as well as men. Governments increasingly intervened in everyday life. New weapons and organizational structures were developed. Yet the history of the war and the reasons it started and spread so rapidly were vastly more complex than the players realized.

Written by highly respected authorities, this book discusses the literature on all aspects of the war. Dennis Showalters opening chapter covers the controversial issue of the wars origins--a complex subject that has been much debated by historians. Ensuing chapters consider the literature on each of the participating countries. The broader subjects of the war at sea and the war in the air are also covered. Daniel Beavers final chapter discusses the mobilization of industry and the new military technology. This book is an excellent starting point for anyone seeking guidance to the immense, and often daunting, body of World War I literature.
