The two world wars of 1914-1918 and 1939-1945 cast a malevolent shadow
over the entire 20th century. This book takes you through the story of
both conflicts – from the soldiers’ terrifying experiences in the
trenches in the First War, to the huge battles and bombings of cities in
the Second. Stunningly illustrated with dramatic contemporary
photographs, paintings, posters and maps, this is an accessible and
thought-provoking introduction to the two most devastating wars the
world has ever known.
