Review: THE FIRST WORLD WAR by Michael Howard

Page Plucker recently read and reviewed The First World War by Michael Howard for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s a snippet:

This one, subtitled A Very Short Introduction, was the smallest and least scary of the books I looked at. I didn’t care about the minutaea of every battle, I just wanted a bit of an overview, and this looked perfect. It’s a very slim book (though the writing inside is quite dense) with an unassuming brown cover. The first thing you see are some maps of Europe showing the positions of the Eastern and Western front, and two political maps showing how Europe looked before and after the war.
