World War I Reader by Michael S. Neiberg

Book Description

Almost 100 years after the Treaty of Versailles was signed, World War I continues to be badly understood and greatly oversimplified. Its enormous impact on the world in terms of international diplomacy and politics, and the ways in which future military engagements would evolve, be fought, and ultimately get resolved have been ignored. With this reader of primary and secondary documents, edited and compiled by Michael S. Neiberg, students, scholars, and war buffs can gain an extensive yet accessible understanding of this conflict. Neiberg introduces the basic problems in the history of World War I, shares the words and experiences of the participants themselves, and, finally, presents some of the most innovative and dynamic current scholarship on the war. Neiberg, a leading historian of World War I, has selected a wide array of primary documents, ranging from government papers to personal diaries, demonstrating the war's devastating effect on all who experienced it, whether President Woodrow Wilson, an English doughboy in the trenches, or a housewife in Germany. In addition to this material, each chapter in The World War I Reader contains a selection of articles and book chapters written by major scholars of World War I, giving readers perspectives on the war that are both historical and contemporary. Chapters are arranged chronologically and by theme, and address causes, the experiences of soldiers and their leaders, battlefield strategies and conditions, home front issues, diplomacy, and peacemaking. A time-line, maps, suggestions for further reading, and a substantive introduction by Neiberg that lays out the historiography of World War I round out the book.

Books By Author Michael S. Neiberg

Path to War by Michael S. Neiberg Path to War, Hardback (November 2016)

In 1914 the country was firmly determined to stay clear of Europe's war. By 1917, it was ready to jump into the fray. What happened in between? Acclaimed historian Michael S. Neiberg examines America's entry into World War One, shedding light on the dilemmas and crises the country faced from 1914 to 1917.

Dance of the Furies by Michael S. Neiberg Dance of the Furies, Paperback (October 2013)

Looking beyond diplomats and generals, the author shows that neither nationalist passions nor desires for revenge took Europe to war in 1914. He gives voice to a generation who suddenly found themselves compelled to participate in a ghastly, protracted orgy of violence they never imagined would come to pass.

Blood of Free Men by Michael S. Neiberg Blood of Free Men, Hardback (October 2012)

Looks at the drama surrounding the Liberation of Paris in 1944, as the Allies struggled to reclaim Europe, Hitler plotted it's destruction, and a handful of conspirators strove to save the City of Lights. This book shows how a host of brave fighters, commanders, and officials saved the city and, in the process, shaped the outcome of World War II.
