World War I: Help me create a "must read" list of the event.
- Eric BensonUnited States
Recently I decided to read Dreadnought by Robert K. Massie, what with the 100th anniversary of the start of WWI upon us. I'm only a portion of the way through, but the alliances, counter-alliances, back room deals, and the larger than life personalities described have really sucked me in. What I've read so far has made the games of Diplomacy I've played over the years snap back into vivid memory and has also created the historical framework which would have made those games come even more alive. When I'm done with Dreadnought, I'd like to follow up with a few more books which chronicle the Great War, yet are also engaging and reasonably available. I've started the list with a couple of books with which I'm already familiar but have yet to read, but I figured the grognards here on BGG can point me in the right direction to discover some real gems.Recommend
Please assist me by adding your favorite books recording story-lines, battles, strategies, etc. which you feel may help me augment my knowledge of this era in world history. Thank you so much for your input.
