11th November 1918 saw the signing of the armistice that ended fighting between the Allies and Germany.

This book will take the reader through the final year of the First World War and everything that led up to this day. Starting from the Spring Offensive, photos and images from The National Archives will highlight important points ranging from the last 100 days to the signing of the various treaties before this final armistice, finishing with a look at the Peace Parade in 1919. The physical and mental effects of the war will also be examined, and show how the war never really ended in 1918 for many.

Many rarely seen images will be provided to support the narrative and further highlight the depth of The National Archives' First World War records.

This is a tidy book with plenty of interest.

War History Online, Mark Barnes

Based on the author’s time as First World War Diverse Histories Researcher at The National Archives she provides a narrative of the final year of the War woven with over 100, many unfamiliar, images drawn from the archives. The Chapters are titled; Treaties, Demobilisation, Women’s Uniformed Services, Disability, Peace Day, The Unknown Warrior and The Cenotaph and this will give some idea of the scope of the book.

Military Historical Society

I regard this useful book as a platform for further study, and as such I will definitely be returning to it again, and again...
