The Great War by Susannne Everett
The Great War was the bloodiest conflict that had ever been fought. It was also the first modern war involving not merely armies and navies, but whole peoples. And it was America’s first great foreign war. The comfortable world of 1914 was shattered forever by the guns of August when the German armies blasted their way into Belgium and France. In four terrible years, fearsome new weapons began to take their toll: poison gas, the submarine and airplane, the Zeppelin and the tank. Millions died. Russia dissolved into revolution. The Central Powers were vanquished and their holdings carved into new nations and colonies. The seeds of World War II were sown.
