Abstract:

Fought on an unprecedented scale, World War I marked the end of the old world military order and the beginning of the era of mechanized warfare. "The Great War, part of sixteen-volume series developed and written by the faculty of the United States Military Academy at West Point, is a thorough examination of the key campaigns of the "war to end all wars." It analyzes the development of military theory and practice from the prewar period of Bismarck's Prussia to the creation of the League of Nations.

Complementing this text is a beautiful large-format full-color campaign atlas. These original maps not only highlight the key military battles of the First World War, they also provide dates, unit numbers, troop deployments, and movements of opposing forces, as well as critical geographical information. This atlas is designed to be used with the text or alone.
