It began in 1914 as a skirmish between one major power, Austria-Hungary, and the tiny Balkan state of Serbia. Sparked by the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand of Austria, it developed within one year into an all-out military conflict involving Russia, Germany, France, Britain, Japan, and Turkey. By 1917 even the United States joined in the fighting. The First World War (1914–18)—known to many as World War I and the Great War—drastically changed the course of European history and forever shaped the worldview of warfare itself.

The FIRST WORLD WAR provides hundreds of firsthand accounts of the war—from memoirs, speeches, letters, and newspapers, which illustrate how historical events appeared to those who lived through them. Among the eyewitness testimonies included are those of Otto von Bismarck, Marshal Joseph Joffre, V. I. Lenin, T. E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia), Woodrow Wilson, and hundreds more.

In addition to the firsthand accounts, each chapter provides an introductory essay and a chronology of events. The book also includes three appendixes—which consist of 56 documents, capsule biographies of more than 200 key figures, and five maps—a bibliography, an index, and 75 photographs.
