    1 thought on “The Great War

    1. Gorgeous, heart rending photos of the Great War, beautifully reproduced Understandably British centric, given its IWM provenance A wonderful book to peruse this centenary year, but the 100 sticker price had me take a trip to the library.

    2. The quintessential coffee table book huge, thick, heavy, glossy If you re looking for a gift for your favorite armchair general, look no farther.Its being a product of research at the Imperial War Museums means that there are those inevitable iconic illustrations, but they re in the minority If you opened it on the first of January and turned over a leaf every day, you d run out of year before you ran out of photos I think my favorite is the one Q 11538 of a German soldier giving a light to a wo [...]

    3. 1914 marks the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I The War to End All Wars was like no conflict before, embracing many nations worldwide and resulting in horrifying casualties THE GREAT WAR, A PHOTOGRAPHIC NARRATIVE commemorates that epic struggle, offering up almost 400 photographs depicting all aspects of the war The pix depict a myriad of scenes soldiers on the march, in trenches and in hospitals battleground scenes ruined villages airplanes on the ground and airborne ships at sea, [...]

    4. Of course, it s not a history and really just barely a narrative as the subtitle would have it, although each section is preceded by a few pages listing the most important events of the war for that time period But, an impressive collection of photographs that will help to flesh out readings of actual histories Very heavy on the British experience, as expected given the source the Imperial War Museums so one hopes that the centenary of the war may bring similar works, especially from the French [...]

    5. This is a great pictorial history, with a lot of unfamiliar images from the First World War My major quibble would be that the Eastern Front is almost completely absent, as is the Italian Front It probably would have worked better as a Western Front presentation.

    6. Wonderful pictures What a nightmare and yet the participants manage to smile and look cheerful Those pictures are the most heart wrenching of all.

    7. These beautiful photographs do tell the horrific story of WWI from the arms race, to the Russian Revolution, and ending with the silence of November 11th.
