World War I: Encyclopedia, כרך 1
Featuring a wealth of new information and the work of acclaimed scholars from around the world, this monumental resource is the new standard reference on the 20th century's most influential conflict. It was supposed to be the war to end all wars. Instead, it opened the floodgate to a century of ethnic, religious, and ideological conflicts throughout the globe, all of it traceable to some extent to the entangled animosities and unprecedented carnage of World War I and the shortsighted, easily shattered peace that followed it. The Encyclopedia of World War I: A Political, Social, and Military History treats its monumental subject with the scope and insight it deserves. Its illustrated volumes, produced by an international team of experts, probe deeper into the battles, campaigns, and weapons technologies of the Great War than any previous work. The Encyclopedia also ranges well beyond the day-to-day battlefield struggles to capture the whole impact of the war, offering in-depth portraits of historic figures, everyday soldiers, and civilians on all home fronts. It also provides the latest thinking on the war's buildup (the Anglo-German naval arms race), legacy (the Russian Revolution and Civil War, the Red Scare in the United States), and unresolved questions such as the ultimate responsibility for the war. With over 1,200 entries (over one million words), plus a volume of primary documents, The Encyclopedia of World War I is the definitive reference on a struggle whose aftershocks are still being felt.
