1916: A Global His­tory

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - THE GUIDE -

by Keith Jef­fery ( Blooms­bury, 436 pages, £25) Go­ing be­yond the usual well­trod­den his­tory of the First World War, this book broad­ens its scope to in­clude a wide ar­ray of sig­nif­i­cant global events of 1916 that fed into the con­flict. As well as dis­cussing high-pro­file bat­tles such as Gal­lipoli, Ver­dun and the Somme, Jef­fery high­lights the key mo­ments in Dublin, East Africa, cen­tral Asia and Rus­sia that helped to trans­form the war but may have been hith­erto over­looked.
