The list author says: "I particularly enjoy reading and studying World War One related books and have accumulated many favorites over the years. I have also included some DVDs that I regularly watch. I hope this list is helpful!"
"I may be old fashioned but I still enjoy reading Barbara Tuchman's The Guns of August. This book, however, updates one's understanding of how World War One started. It is fascinating, I could not put this book down!"
"This excellent volume serves as a much needed update to The Guns of August and the previously listed volume above. Each book still has merit, but Herwig provides new information and a new perspective."
"This book finally helped me to understand the Somme. I still like the classic "The Somme" by Anthony Farrar-Hockley, but Hart has a wealth of first person accounts that really illustrate the battle's grim reality!"
"The following 7 books comprise a terrific WW1 guidebook series! I love these books because they are the next best thing to being there and if you are fortunate enough to be there, you definitely want to have these books with you to complement your experience!"
