With the aid of numerous black-and-white photographs, many previously unpublished, The History of World War I series recreates the battles and campaigns that raged across the surface of the globe, on land, at sea, and in the air.

The Western Front 1914-1916 describes the opening two years of the war in the West, from the initial German invasion of Belgium and France, to the stalemate after the Somme. It includes such battles and campaigns as the Battle of the Marne, Mons, Ypres, Champagne, the Somme, and Verdun. Detailed maps accompany boxes explaining key events, personalities, and weapons.

Michael S. Neiberg is Professor of History and Chair of War Studies at the United States Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. His published work specializes on the First and Second World Wars in global context. The Wall Street Journal named his Dance of the Furies: Europe and the Outbreak of World War I (Harvard University Press) one of the five best books ever written about that war. In October 2016 Oxford University Press published his Path to War, a history of American responses to the Great War in Europe, 1914-1917, and in July 2017 Oxford published his Concise History of the Treaty of Versailles. In 2017 he was awarded the Médaille d'Or du Rayonnement Culturel from La Renaissance Française, an organization founded by French President Raymond Poincaré in 1915 to keep French culture alive during the First World War.
