A History of the Great War, 1914-1918
A History of the Great War, 1914-1918
By C. R. M. Cruttwell
Oxford University Press, 1934, 663 pp.

This is perhaps the best one-volume history of the war available in English. The work of a trained historian who himself served with the armies, it is dispassionate and yet critical. This sort of reliable, non-technical book has been lacking, and it therefore ought to make a wide appeal.
