From the Christmas Truce of 1914 to the Armistice of 1918, IWM and Professor Gary Sheffield have compiled a thorough and engaging study of the most important conflict in human history. The First World War provides a full, illustrated history of the conflict, giving a fantastic introduction for those new to the period, as well as genuine insight for those more familiar with it.
The title combines authoritative research and narrative with snippets from life in the trenches and back home in wartime Britain. Currently professor of War Studies at the University of Wolverhampton, Sheffield is an authority on 19th and 20th-century military history, and the role of the British Army during both world wars.
Alongside his in-depth descriptions of each year of WWI, you’ll find over 200 photographs and detailed colour battle maps to follow each battle as it happened.
