In August 1914 the mobilisation of Imperial Germany's 800,000-strong army
ushered in the first great war of the modern age - a war which still stands as
the greatest slaughter of soldiers in history. That German Army is also the best
example of a particular period of military thought, when virtually the whole
manpower of the European nations was integrated into mass conscript armies,
supported by several age categories of reservists and by dedicated industrial
and transport systems. In this first of three volumes the author offers an
extraordinary mass of information, in text and tables, illustrated by
photographs and colour plates. Contents: Overview - the German forces August
1914-September 1915 * The High Command * The four national
contingents * Organisation - the Field Army, the Replacement Army *
