If the 100-year anniversary of the Great War has left you feeling a little under-informed, the 5 Minute History series is the perfect way to read up on this major conflict in short bursts and without pages of intricate detail. A perfect overview for the uninitiated, this book will inform and education you even if you have never read a history book in your life. One of the greatest myths of the First World War is that it was a case of 'lions led by donkeys', yet there were many strong and powerful leaders who shaped the war for better or worse and this accessible guide takes you through each of these key figures from all of the major countries involved in the fighting. From Kitchener and his New Army to the Kaiser and the American President, Peter Doyle explains why they were important and how the decisions they made influenced the outcomes of the 'war to end all wars'.
