A HISTORY OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR IN 100 OBJECTS, now reissued in paperback, narrates the causes, progress and outcome of the First World War by telling the stories behind 100 items of material evidence of that cataclysmic and shattering conflict.

From weapons that created carnage to affectionate letters home and from unexpected items of trench decoration to the paintings of official war artists, the objects are as extraordinary in their diversity and story-telling power as they are devastating in their poignancy.

Each object is depicted on a full page and is the subject of a short chapter that 'fans out' from the item itself to describe the context, the people and the events associated with it. Distinctive and original, A HISTORY OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR IN 100 OBJECTS is a unique commemoration of 'the war to end all wars'.
