The War to End All Wars - Russell Freedman

Early in the twentieth century, the world erupted into THE WAR TO END ALL WARS (Clarion, $22). In hindsight we know that World War I was only the first in a horrific series of conflagrations that spanned the century. This leaves us with important questions: why did the war break out in 1914? Why was it so wasteful of human life? And, most important, why did it fail to end all wars? In clear prose, author Russell Freedman answers these questions, depicting the horror and stalemate of trench warfare and explaining the roots of the changes and disasters that Europe faced in the 1930s and 1940s. There are excellent period photographs throughout. Ages 10-15. DDL
