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.
its the most clear book for the world war

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.
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
