Book Cover
A Companion to World War I

A Companion to World War I brings together a team of distinguished historians from 10 countries who contribute 38 substantial and thought-provoking chapters. The Companion opens with a section on the state of the world before 1914, as it prepared for war without anticipating its true nature, and concludes with an examination of the conflict's military, diplomatic, and cultural legacies. In addition to covering the military history of the war and the individual states involved, contributors explore major themes such as war crimes, occupations, film, and gender.

Reflecting the latest historical research, this Companion enriches our understanding of the origins, nature, and impact of what remains one of the most devastating events in modern history.
