First World War - An Illustrated History
The First World War was the most destructive conflict the world had known with scarcely a family throughout the UK and Commonwealth being untouched by the terrible slaughter of such battles as the Somme, Ypres and Gallipoli.
In this 132-page special from the team behind Britain at War magazine, the key events that shaped the war are brought sharply into focus.
