With the aid of numerous black-and-white photographs, many previously unpublished, The History of World War I series recreates the battles and campaigns that raged across the surface of the globe, on land, at sea, and in the air.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 1917-1918 describes the final two years of the war as the Entente were boosted by the entry of America on their side, and the Germans struggled to take advantage of the Russian defeat. It includes such battles and campaigns as Third Ypres, also known as Passchendaele, Vimy Ridge, Operation Michael, Belleau Wood, and Amiens. Detailed maps accompany boxes explaining key events, personalities, and weapons.

He is author of many books including The Illustrated History of World War I and The Boys of '67, and co-author of Campaigns of World War II: The Pacific War, The Illustrated History of the Vietnam War, and Strategy and Tactics: Infantry Warfare.
