Abstract:

"Victory 1918 recounts the myriad of tragic blunders and the unprecedented, unfathomable bloodshed that was World War I. When an armistice was finally signed in the forest of Compiegne outside of Paris, the Great War had shuttered to an end, but not before it had been fought on three continents. Alan Palmer, while recounting the fruitless, static trench warfare of the western front, shifts the focus away from the west and explores the significance of other battlefields, showing their importance in the outcome of the war and in the shaping of the political and territorial alliances of the present day. Many of the major players of the war - Allied Generals Sir Douglas Haig, Sir Edmund Allenby, Ferdinand Foch, and John J. Pershing; Central Powers Generals Paul von Hindenburg and Erich Ludendorff, and Britain's prime minister, David Lloyd George - come alive in these pages."--Jacket.
