Nonfiction master Russell Freedman illuminates for young readers the complex and rarely discussed subject of World War I. The tangled relationships and alliances of many nations, the introduction of modern weaponry, and top-level military decisions that resulted in thousands upon thousands of casualties all contributed to the "great war," which people hoped and believed would be the only conflict of its kind. In this clear and authoritative account, the Newbery Medal-winning author shows theways in which the seeds of a second world war were sown in the first. Numerous archival photographs give the often disturbing subject matter a moving visual counterpart. Includes source notes, a bibliography, and an index.

It was called the Great War because so many nations fought and so many people died, and for the first time, modern weapons were used. It was called The War to End All Wars, because it was unthinkable that such carnage would be repeated. It became World War I when World War II began, in part because of events during World War I. Illus. with photos.
