World War I forever changed how nations engage in warfare. Airplanes, tanks, and submarines were used on a larger scale than ever before. This volume examines the root causes of World War I, which escalated from a small political incident into a massive global crisis. It also details the impact of this war in its immediate aftermath and in the decades that followed.
