The First World War: An Illustrated History

The First World War: An Illustrated History

A. J. P. Taylor

1970

A. J. P. Taylor, The First World War: An Illustrated History, © 1963,1970, Perigee Books, New York, Soft cover, 296 Pages, 0-399-50260-2. Dimensions (in inches): 0.79 x 7.67 x 5.20.
Description:

A rare event in historical writing -- a world-renowned historian combines personally selected illustrations with a brillant text to present an integrated, clearly reasoned narrative of the Great War. The book describes and analyzes the entire compass and course of World War I -- from Sarajevo to Versailles, from the Easter Rising in Ireland to the Russian Revolution, from Gallipoli to the bloody fighting on the eastern and western fronts.

The photographs -- more than 220, many never before published -- were chosen with meticulous care from such archives as the Imperial War Museum, Bibliothèque National and the National Archives in Washington in order to amplify and to illuminate Mr. Taylor's masterly text.

Pictorial Souvenir of Camp Zachary Taylor, Kentucky Pictorial Souvenir of Camp Zachary Taylor, Kentucky Pictorial Publishing Company 1928

Camp Zachary Taylor was established by Act of Congress for the purpose of training men for the World War. It was situated near Louisville, Kentucky. The Original tract comprised two thousand seven hundred acres which was later added to as more space was required to take care of the men assigned to this training ground. Major Lamphere had supervision of the first 1200 barracks buildings, construction of which was begun on June 22, 1917.

On September 1st of that year, approximately 40,000 men had arrived and were quartered at Taylor. It was the home of the 84th Division commanded by Major General Harry C. Hale. This book is dedicated to those patriotic Americans who served in the World War.

If the pictures presented will assist in recalling incidents and associations which were enjoyed while stationed at Camp Zachary Taylor, Kentucky, the purpose for which this volume is published will have been accomplished.
