Another fine historical selection from Russell Freedman. Chronological details take the reader from the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife in Sarajevo on June 28, 1914 through the horrors of the Great War, the signing of the Armistice and the Treaty of Versailles to the beginning of the Second World War--Hitler's invasion of Poland in September 1939. Numerous black and white photos complement the text and four maps show the changing boundaries of European nations during the four-year war. Freedman dedicated the book to his father, who was a sixteen-year-old private serving in France in 1918, and included a photo of him but no further information is given about the man. Details about Freedman's father's service would've added a nice personalization to the book. An excellent choice for middle- and high-school libraries.
