In this highly acclaimed short history of the First World War, Strachan argues that the conflict became global long before the involvement of the USA, and discusses the war in Africa, the Far East and Eastern Europe, and the German-Ottoman alliance. He also shows, by recovering contemporary - pre-1920s - views of the war, that for liberal countries struggling to defend their freedoms it was far from futile.
