Description - The First World War by G. J. De Groot
This 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.
