Today is the last day before the holiday weekend. For the last book, we look back to the first world war which officially ended with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on June 28th, 1919. However, hostilities ended earlier on November 11th, 1918. As such, the eleventh day of the eleventh month at the eleventh hour is regarded as the end of 'the war to end all wars.' If you want to look through the history of this event, the library recommends World War I: the definitive visual history from Sarajevo to Versailles by R.G. Grant.

ISBN: 9781465419385
Publication Date: 2014-04-21
2014 marks the centennial of the start of World War I -- DK will mark the occasion with the publication of World War I: The Definitive Visual Guide, a vividly illustrated, in-depth account of the Great War. Written by historian R. G. Grant, and created by DK's award-winning editorial and design team, World War I charts the developments of the war from a global perspective. Using illustrated timelines, detailed maps, and personal accounts, readers will see the oft-studied war in a new light. Key episodes are set clearly in the wider context of the conflict, in-depth profiles look at the key generals and political leaders, and full-color photo galleries showcase the weapons, inventions, and new technologies that altered the course of history. A vivid portrait of the confrontation on land, sea, and sky, World War I: The Definitive Visual Guide offers readers a bold and thoughtful new look at this complex and explosive moment in history.
