Almanac of World War I

Provides a day-by-day account of the action on all fronts and of the events surrounding the conflict, from the guns of August 1914 to the November 1918 Armistice and its troubled aftermath. Daily entries, topical descriptions, biographical sketches, maps, and illustrations combine to give a ready and succinct account of what was happening in each of the principal theaters of war.

Reviews

"Captures the pathos and absurdity of the conflict in a way that few others have."—American Reference Books Annual

"There is really nothing comparable to this volume."—Booklist

"Almanacs represent the final book(s) needed to complete a collection regarding a particular period in history. David Burg and L. Edward Purcell's Almanac of World War I is such a book."—BookLovers

"This valuable reference book provides a day-by-day account of the First World War, with each entry divided geographically."—Canadian Military History

"Among the WWI chronologies published over the past decade, Burg and Purcell's is unique in the amount of analysis it contains. The main body is a detailed day-by-day account of the war's events, emphasizing the military dimensions but also touching of politics and diplomacy."—Choice

"Daily events, topical descriptions, biographical sketches, informative sidebars, maps, and illustrations combine to give a succinct account of what was happening in each of the principal theaters of the war."—Library Lane

"The best book of its type on the subject."—McCormick (SC) Messenger

"A useful reference for the Great War."—Paper Wars

"Whereas most accounts of World War I zero in on the muddy trenches of the Western front, Burg and Purcell's work puts that theater in the context of the larger war."—Tallahassee Democrat

"It's a great reference, so encompassing and valuable the natural question is why it took so long to produce such a resource."—Tallahassee Democrat

"The daily entries, the heart of the almanac, are particularly apt in what the authors have chosen to highlight. The book has value for buffs and scholars alike."—Timothy K. Nenninger
