Detailed Book Description

World War I sustained these staggering casualties: 9 million dead soldiers, 12 million or more civilian lives lost, millions more wounded. But those numbers only hint at the devastation, both political and personal, that lies at the heart of the Great War.

World War I: The Great War to End All Wars brings to light the key details of this critical juncture in history, which marks the transition to a modern era in which mass destruction became not only a possibility but a reality through military technologies a century in the making. By focusing not only on military life on the battlefields and in the trenches but also at anti-war protest movements, art and popular culture, homefront efforts across the globe, and experiences in British and French colonies, this book offers a sense of how this war penetrated all corners of the world and impacted all of its peoples emerges. Essential questions guide readers’ investigations while hands-on activities promote critical and creative problem solving, and text-to-world connections highlight the way the past provides context for the present-day world.
