Book “Lest We Forget: The Great War”
World War I Prints from the Pritzker Military Museum & Library As the United States commemorates the centennial of World War I, one of the nation’s premier military history institutions pays tribute to the Americans who served and the allies they fought beside to defeat a resourceful enemy with a lavishly illustrated book.
It is an official product of the United States World War One Centennial Commission.
The story of WWI is told through the memorable art it spawned―including posters from nations involved in the conflict―and a taut narrative account of the war’s signal events, its major personalities and its tragic consequences; and the timely period photographs that illustrate the awful realities of this revolutionary conflict. Most importantly, this book is a tribute to those who served in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and what would become the Air Force.
It serves as a lasting reminder that our world ignores the history of World War I (and the ensuing WWII) at its peril―lest we forget. Proceeds help fund the WW1 Memorial in Washington, DC.
“…a sumptuous volume…this ample book offers an in-depth look at World War I…a superlative reference volume.” –History News Network
