The Dictionary of the First World WarBook - 1995
From the publisher's description: "The book's comprehensive coverage of total warfare--the battles, commanders, weapons, tactics and strategies--is interwoven with analyses of the sweeping political, social and economic changes imposed on a world order in terminal convulsion. The dictionary of the First World War represents the perspective of a new generation of historians, looking at the War as a pan-European--and indeed global--conflict. Thus the book concentrates equally on the American, French, German, British, Italian, Russian, Turkish and Austro-Hungarian experiences--together with those of the many other participating peoples and nations. In all, there are some 1200 carefully cross-referenced entries, together with a detailed day-by-day chronology and a generous provision of specially commissioned maps."
