Discover the political and social turmoil of the time, the horrific conditions of trench warfare, the gripping accounts of naval combat, and the hero worship of flying aces. Short biographies and first-hand accounts help young readers relate to this world-changing period in history. After the assassination or Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand, war was declared by Europe's five great powers. Although it was a European war, colonies also had to supply forces for European battles. World War I: 1914-1916 - A Terrible New Warfare Begins follows the first few years of the Great War. Opposing countries were equally matched in lighting power and relied on naval and U-boat blockades. They also dug in for a new kind of long-term fighting-trench warfare. Book jacket.
