World War 1: A Reader’s Guide

SleepwalkersAs you are aware by now I am an historian, and a historian’s answer to almost any question is something like: ‘ there must be a book about that; I need to find it (them); I need to read it (them).’

With that in mind I want to provide a brief list of books that I have found helpful as I have tried to gain a better understanding of the war in which my great-uncle died.  This is by no means an extensive list – there have been thousands of books written about the war and I have not even scratched the surface.  Still, you have to begin somewhere.  If you find any of these interesting, do what trained historians do – keep reading!

(S. Rubert)

You can read the full list of WW1 must-read books on Dr. Rubert’s blog ‘Exploring WW1.’
