The third part of basically a scholarly look at the Great War, this book, edited by Peter Liddle, pulls together 20 essays from academics, and litters each chapter with reference notes and bibliographies. As such, you can dip in and out, selecting topics at random, although it is generally organised in three sections: British and Commonwealth industry, propaganda, strategy and actions; the USA, France, Russia, Italy and the German defeat; and lastly British identity and assorted topics. As can be see, it’s a wide list and some are better written than others.
