Description
From Lawrence of Arabia's rifle to John Singer Sargent's painting Gassed, from an oil-stained camisole worn by a survivor of the torpedoed Lusitania to a roll of toilet paper imprinted with "Kaiser Bill's" visage, this book depicts the impact of World War I through 100 objects in the collection of London's Imperial War Museum.

"Moving chronologically, the authors expound on beautifully photographed objects with thorough narratives explaining the greater significance of the objects, as well as shorter pieces that provide intimate information about the object itself.... The text packs in an impressive amount of detail ... the explanations of facts and events are always clear.... This is a stunning read that is exciting in its depth, scope and personal feel. After seeing and reading about objects touched, used, cherished and hated by those who experienced the war, it will be impossible not to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of the struggle that truly ... still shapes the world in which we live."Publishers Weekly
