Reviews - What do customers think about World War I in Photographs?

Inaccurate picture titles, unusual narrative  Sep 15, 2009
Half the photos are very good and not widely known before. Others have been published previously. The captions are unreliable, and photos from post-1916 are used to illustrate the text for events in 1914. For instance "German troops enter Brussels (in 1914)" shows troops in 1916 trench helmets. The text describing the defense of Belgium in 1914 shows a photo of Belgian troops c.1918.

The text blames the Entente for starting the war, says Austria-Hungary had no choice but to attack Serbia because that country was "using all its strength" to destroy the dual monarchy. The author says almost nothing regarding German intentions, leaving a vacuum when contrasted with all the blame levied against France, Russia, and Great Britain.

In summary, good for some pictures, defective in regard to the text.
Great!  Dec 5, 2008
Big book with a good overview of battles, it covers pre-war tensions all the way to the Treaty of Versaille. This isn't just a picture book, it is a discussion and well done. It is most accurate. But this is the largest collection of photos Ive ever seen. Has different sections on the naval vs. land war and America entering the war. Even includes the Russian revolution. Some of the photos are so obscure that I had never seen then before like training, hospital ships and the giant bone piles of dead soldiers which is really gross.

Photos are from American, British, German, Japanese and all different sources.
