World War I Companion

We rated this book:


One hundred years ago, the war to end all wars began. This war was different from any earlier war, not only in its scope, but in the advancements in technology that gave the military such tools as modern artillery, tanks, and airplanes for the first time. This changed the face of war in wide-ranging and terrible ways. Editor Matthias Strohn gathered essays by thirteen military leaders and historians, each of which takes an in-depth look at a particular segment of the war. The editor brought true experts to write on these topics. For instance, Dr. James S. Corum, who writes on World War I Aviation, taught at the US Air Force School of Advanced Air and Space Studies at Maxwell Air Force Base as well as the US Army Command and General Staff College, Fort Leavenworth and has written several books and contributed to many more on military history. The Imperial Russian Army and the Eastern Front is covered by Dr. Stephen Walsh, a Senior Lecturer in the Department of War Studies at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst. These many experts bring a fresh perspective to the great body of work on this subject. A must read for history buffs.
