الكتاب يتحدث عن الحرب العالمية الأولى و وقائعها , مرفقًا بصور أدوات/معدات عسكرية, وعلاجية, بعض الخرائط, ملصقات التعبئة العامة, وصور لجنود من الطرفين, رسائل وصور عائلية, أو حتى للمواقع التي دارت فيها معارك كبرى, وللمدن التي دُمّرت بشكل كامل أو حتى جزئي، و خُتم بتعريف بالشخصيات الهامة والتي أثرت في هذه الحرب، وتوضيح لبعض المصطلحات التي ذكرها طوال الصفحات.

لا أعلم السبب, لكن الكتاب لم يعجبني كما توقعت, ربما لكونه بسيط في جانب التكتيكات و الاستراتيجيات الحربية, والأسباب التي أدت للحرب, وسيرها وكيف ان

انتابتني خيبة أمل كبيرة من الكتاب، فأنا أفضل السرد المتسلسل زمنياً لأحداث الحرب مع التحليل التاريخي الدقيق لأسبابها وأهم القرارات المصيرية التي تم اتخاذها وكيف تم بناء التحالفات بين الدول إلى جانب استراتيجيات الحرب والتكتيكات التي استخدمت في المعارك... الخ. لكن يبدو أن هذا ليس هدف الكتاب أساساً والتفاصيل الهامشية التي غرق فيها لم تجذب اهتمامي. كنت أنتظر كذلك مزيداً من المعلومات عن الدور العربي والتركي في هذه الحرب لكنه اختصر ذلك في صفحتين فقط لا غير تمجدان لورنس العرب رغم أن الأمة العربية والإسل ...more

عمل مصور للحرب العالمية الاولى بسيط جدا وملىء بالمعلومات والصور ,وهو مجرد اخبار مختصرة جدا يصلح كبداية لفهم تلك الحقبة وان كان لا يوجد به اى معلومات عن دوافع اتخاذ القرارات والاستراتيجيات التى استخدمت فى الحرب

Chronological explanation of WWI beginning with the political causes and the mobilizations, battles and life on the various fronts. Mostly photographic with limited text. Glossary, index, and a list of important people and battles. Good basic introduction to WWI. The Treaty of Versailles is not addressed--maybe that is another book.
As always with this series, lots of interesting facts, and even more interesting illustrations (mostly photos). Aimed at children, but lots of interest for adults as well if only because most books aimed at adults don't show pictures.
Highly recommended introduction to some 20th century history.

ككل أجزاء سلسلة"المشاهدات العلمية"-و التي أفضل تسميتها"شاهد عيان"-يحاول الكتاب نقل القارئ للأنغماس في أوحال الحرب العالمية الأولى و فهم طبيعتها و سيرها بغض النظر عن المسار التاريخي المحدد و أستبداله بالتركيز على التفاصيل التي شكلت و أزهقت حياة الملايين و أسهمت في رسم عالمنا المعاصر.

World War I is a great book because it shows all the causes, battles, and effects of the First World War. It all began through the death of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary. This lead to many European nations to attach each other. One important battle discussed on the book was the Battle of the Marne, where French forces fought German forces. Having taken a course on U.S History, I can say this book helped me.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about the Fir

amazing book or I should describe it as a photo album with some describes the details of the war, the remarkable figures and battles and some new information I've never heard about before..however I noticed marked prejudice towards the the author is trying to persuade the reader that the USA had a very strong reasoning to Participate in the war,,,otherwise it was fun reading this book...but after reading it I still wonder..did it really worth the millions of wasted lifes and mo ...more
This was very good. It had a lot of different and interesting facts about how this great first War started and then also a little about how the great depression started, the middle, and then how it ended and also the facts in the back of the book are great if you don't know that much about WWI. It also had some things about the election before the War started.
Could've used some more maps.
كتاب رائع لكن مش كامل من ناحية تتابع الاحداث ومش بيهتم بسرد الاحداث اكثر من انه بيوضح التجهيزات العسكرية والتقدم اللى احرزه الحلفاء والالمان ع مختلف الجبهات
