Highly regarded for its clarification of the complexities of World War.

This book is designed for courses on World War II, Military History, and 20th Century Europe. Written by author Michael J. Lyons, it comprises a very readable overview of every salient aspect in the war, albeit briefly, in all the political, diplomatic, economic, military and human dimensions in which the war was played out.

World War II: A Short History. A clear military/political history of the First World War. By Thriftbooks. com User, April 27, 2001. This is a clear, readable textbook that covers the background of the war, wartime developments on all fronts, and the aftermath of the war. The focus is almost entirely on Europe; there is one chapter on the war outside Europe, but little attention otherwise to the involvement of non-Europeans (primarily via colonial empires) in the war effort.

The First World War had been proceeding for nearly four years, causing millions of casualties and destroying a European civilization that had, before war broke out in 1914, been the proudest creation of the world

The First World War had been proceeding for nearly four years, causing millions of casualties and destroying a European civilization that had, before war broke out in 1914, been the proudest creation of the world. The war had destroyed Tsarist Russia; the Bolsheviks had staged their revolutionary take-over in November 1917; they had promised peace; and now at Brest-Litovsk they got it – at German dictation.

World War II: A Short Hi. .has been added to your Cart. If on content alone, it would be a 6 (yeah, not possible - I know). M. Lyons does a tremendous job illuminating the facts behind the battles and decisions in the most concise and precise ways. I teach a CO-OP home-school WWII class and this will be on my lectern from Day 1! The text covers enough of WWI to help explain how the treaties afterward were essentially only an armistice for 20 years and led to WWII. He also addresses the finanial, geopolitical, and nationalistic atmospheres that helped bring about the NEXT 'War to End all Wars.

  • I found this book to be not only a frustrating read, but full of too many facts and figures. It took the fun out of learning about World War I. I certainly learned a lot, but I wish the book had been more interesting.

  • great

  • It is ok book to read.

  • Very informative little book, used it for my college western culture class. Much easier to read and plenty more interesting than some articles my professors has us reading haha!

  • If I did have this book in college I would not have passed my history classes.

    I was able to get a used copy of this book after I bought it knew. Its a lot extra over an particular subject, WWI.

    If you are studying WWI a great read.

  • World War I, A Short History is one book that certainly can be judged by its cover, it is a no frills statement of all facts concerning World War I from its causes to its consequences, it is accurate, detailed and has a refreshing lack of personal opinion. Do to its overwhelming detail and lack of personal opinion Lyons's book is best suited not as a class room text but as a stand alone resource of the First World War. There is no doubt of Lyons in depth knowledge of his subject but the comprehensive manner in witch he presents it makes the book no light reading, careful note taking is required in order to make the most out of the information that Lyons presents, despite this inconvenience the book is still a valuable resource.

  • This is a clear, readable textbook that covers the background of the war, wartime developments on all fronts, and the aftermath of the war. The focus is almost entirely on Europe; there is one chapter on the war outside Europe, but little attention otherwise to the involvement of non-Europeans (primarily via colonial empires) in the war effort. The focus is political and military, with occasional discussion of economic matters. There is little social and no cultural history--for those topics, look elsewhere. The maps are clear (though I would prefer more of them), and there are some photos--though for the price of this book, I would have expected more illustrations. It has a list of recommended reading and takes account of a good deal of recent research. The writing isn't gripping--it is a textbook, after all--but it's clear. Section headings help readers keep track of major trends.
