World War I

From the LUSITANIA to Versailles

Series: The United States at War

By Zachary Kent

The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in 1914 ignited a bloody conflict among Europe’s most powerful nations. As leaders in Europe bullied each other toward war, they had no idea that this war would become a global conflict. The United States entered World War I and sided with the Allies in their fight against the Central powers. Millions of people died during World War I; empires were destroyed, kings were dethroned, and entire countries disappeared. Author Zachary Kent details “the war to end all wars,” including the doughboys of the United States, life on the home front, and the introduction of modern warfare.

"The authors creatively utilize quotes from political leaders, soldiers, and citizens of countries fighting in the wars."

The Horn Book Guide, Spring 2012

". . . clearly written text makes this a wonderful book to supplement social studies textbook readings."

Book Buzz, January 2012

"The experiences of common soldiers are peppered throughout the text in a way that affords readers an opportunity to get a feel for the terrible grit that was the soldier's experience in this bloody war. This book will serve its readers well as an introduction to World War I and the cost that conflict exacted from the people who fought, died, and supported the 'War to End All Wars.'"
