Published by the Pritzker Military Museum & Library, in collaboration with the United States World War One Centennial Commission, this beautiful, 400 page, heavily-illustrated story about WWI, is published upon the occasion of the United States Centennial of the Great War. 

Featuring an introduction by WWI historian and author Sir Hew Strachan and history by Michael W. Robbins, it is a wonderful resource for anyone who wants to learn about World War One.

The story of this epic struggle is told through many means, including the powerful and memorable art it spawned--the posters from all nations; a taut narrative account of the war's significant events; its major personalities, and it's tragic consequences; and the timely period photographs that illustrate the awful realities of this revolutionary conflict.   

Most importantly, this book is a tribute to those who served: the doughboys and sailors and the allies they fought beside to defeat collectively a resourceful and implacable enemy.  it also serves as a lasting reminder that our world ignores the history of World War I at its peril--lest we forget.
