The dust jacket reads: The World War I Album shows the changes that took place in the course of the war - how the cavalry and infantry maneuvers of 1914 were superseded by the tanks, guns and gas shells of 1918, or the weak and haphazard air patrols of the opening months became the elaborately organized bomber and fighter squadrons of the final offensives. In addition to the static struggles on the Western Front, there were the more open but equally hard-fought battles on the Eastern Front and in Italy, while the war against Turkey saw events as different as the close-range combat at Gallipoli and the desert epic of Lawrence and the Arab Revolt. Equally new and influential in the war was the largely unseen menace of the German submarine fleet, whose depredations finally served to bring the USA into the war. The World War I Album features over 600 photographs and paintings, many of them in color, which are supported by carefully re searched and informative captions and an illuminating historical commentary. No student of history or military affairs can fail to be en- thralled by this finely produced and fascinating collection.Binding: Hard Cover
