First World War by Gerard DeGroot
Book DescriptionThis work aims to explain World War I in a manner the lay person can understand, and more advanced readers will still find intriguing. It covers a broad canvas, but does so with great economy. The origins of the war, both diplomatic and social, are discussed and the reader is then taken through the major battles on the Eastern and Western Fronts. This provides an insight into the eventual Allied victory. The war at sea, on the home front and in distant theatres is also carefully examined. There is, in addition, a worm's-eye view of the conflict as it was experienced by the men in the trenches.

Back in Blighty, Paperback (April 2014)
World War One had a devastating, cataclysmic impact on the world and the British people. As its reverberations were so long-lasting and significant, it is easy to assume that the social consequences were as profound. This book presents the survey of life back at home during the First World War.
Dark Side of the Moon, Paperback (February 2008)
Reveals how NASA cashed in on the Americans' thirst for heroes in an age of discontent and became obsessed with putting men in space. Landing on the moon, it was argued, would be good for the economy, for politics, and for the soul. This book exposes the truth behind one of the most revered fictions of American history.
