1916 A GLOBAL HISTORY
by Keith Jeffery

Covering the twelve months of 1916, the author uses twelve moments from several locations and shows how they reverberated around the world. As well as discussing better-known battles such as Gallipoli, Verdun and the Somme, he examines Dublin and the Easter Rising, East Africa, the Italian front, Central Asia and Russia, where the killing of Rasputin exposed the internal political weakness of the country's empire. In charting a wide range of wartime experience, he studies the 'intelligence war', naval engagements at Jutland as well as the political consequences that ensued from the momentous American presidential election.

BREAKTHROUGH
by Hubert C Johnson

The trench-warfare stalemate of World War I was the result of new technology and the cultural mindset of the times. The machine gun had made the battlefield unhabitable in the fifty years since the Civil War: it mowed down soldiers at an inconceivable rate. But the elaboration of defensive entrenchments early in World War I changed all that. An uneasy standoff ensued, an impasse that could not be broken, though commanders on both sides sacrificed thousands of men in the attempt. The problem was that they simply could not imagine any alternative to the frontal assault. It took a new breed of warrior, the adventurous captains and majors who championed technological innovations like tanks and airplanes, to break through the impasse

THE FIRST WORLD WAR
by John Keegan

Dustjacket torn and marked. Good reading copy. Keegan's account of WWI looks at the war on all fronts, from its political and cultural origins to the bloody conclusion. He assesses the commanders and considers the difficulties and limited options that appeared to those involved, slow communications by telegraph, tactics and strategy made possible by the advances in weapons technology, and war plans based on the logistics of railway networks.
