From Colonel Robert Dalessandro, director of the U.S. Army's Center of Military History, comes and amazing new account of the First World War.
The Great War: A World War I Collector's Vault offers a dramatic new way to experience the breadth and the scope of the "War to End War," from the corridors of power where statesmen and royalty watched the course of battle, to the muddy trenches where the soldiers fought, struggled, and longed for home. Tucked inside the book you'll find replicas of wartime artifacts: aircraft silhouette cards, tank blueprints, a German field-engineering manual, a mimeographed Trench Order and Sector Map, orders from HQ, a press pass into the Versailles Treaty negotiations, and more.
Along with these pieces of history, you'll be immersed in a gripping narrative, richly illustrated by seldom-seen images.
