    Liddell Hart's History of the First World War first appeared in and is widely regarded as one of the greatest, most cogent accounts of the conflict ever published. A leading military strategist and historian who fought on the Western Front, Liddell Hart combines astute tactical analysis with compassion for those who lost their lives on the battlefield/5(44). The number of soldiers wounded in World War I is, in itself, devastating: over 21 million military wounded, and nearly 10 million killed. On the battlefield, the injuries were shocking, unlike anything those in the medical field had ever witnessed. The bullets hit fast and hard, went deep and took bits of dirty uniform and airborne soil particles in with them.

    For a fat single volume history of the war only, Max Hastings' Inferno is good. But it isn't possible to understand the war alone. In my opinion the best fat single volume source to explain that is Modern Times, by Paul Johnson, although it extend. Beginning with the Renaissance, the culture of the West exploded. Over the next years, rapid innovations in philosophy, technology, economics, military affairs, and politics allowed what had once been a cultural backwater left by the collapse of the Roman Empire to dominate the world.
