978280628985846EBookPlurilingua PublishingThe final years of the First World War were a very uncertain time; it seemed that victory could go either way. The French and British had been beaten back at the Second Battle of the Aisne and at Flanders Fields, the Italians had been defeated at the Battle of Caporetto, and Russia had just signed a peace treaty with Germany. However, Germany's allies were also severely weakened, and the entry of the United States into the war seemed likely to turn the tide. In just 50 minutes, you will find out how the final years of the war shaped the outcome of the fighting and understand their profound influence on the future of Germany. This straightforward and informative book provides a thorough discussion of the key moments in the final years of the fighting, including the Allied crisis of confidence, the weakening of the German army and the Allied counter-offensive. It also features a full description of the strategies of both sides and a thorough examination of the immediate consequences of the conflict, giving you all the essential information about the closing stage of World War I. About World War I World War I was one of the largest wars in history, not to mention one of the most deadly as a result of recent technological advances. Poison gas was used as a weapon for the very first time and proved to be as deadly to civilians as it was to soldiers, since it was often blown away from the battlefield towards inhabited areas. Over nine million combattants and seven million civilians were killed over the course of the fighting, which lasted in total for four years, three months and two weeks. In addition, the war indirectly caused the outbreak of World War II. War memorials have since been erected in thousands of towns and villages. This clear and accessible 46-page book is structured as follows: Introduction to World War I, 1918: the outcome The final round The formidable yet fragile Kaiserheer The Allied crisis of confidence The Central Powers’ last roll of the dice The Allied counter-offensive The consequences of the Great War An unstable world order The price of the war Major social upheaval Summary The final years of the First World War were a very uncertain time; it seemed that victory could go either way.
