As we mark the centenary of the end of World War One, this astonishing book collects over five hundred remarkable photographs and rarely seen material of the war from the Imperial War Museum archives
The Great War was the first conflict to be documented in photographs. In The Great War: A Photographic Narrative, we follow the events of the war through extraordinary photographs, from the opening photograph of the gun that fired the first shot of the war to the final photograph of an audio recording showing the arrival of silence on 11th November 1918.
Imperial War Museum houses one of the greatest photographic archives of conflict in the world. This unique book is divided into five sections, each prefaced with a detailed chronology of events and a historical summary, together with detailed captions for every picture.
