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.
Many books on the subject have largely concentrated on the Western Front, with forays into the Atlantic, Mesopotamia, and Gallipoli. In contrast, 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.
