Summary
This album comes with a stereoscopic viewer that allows the accompanying stereoscopic photo-cards images to be seen in 3D. The book provides a brief history of war photography and an overview of the Great War from 1914 through the Treaty of Versailles. Each chapter covers a year of the war and each is introduced by a newspaper format summary of events from that year around the world to provide some historical perspective. The text is rich in personal accounts of the war as seen in letters and notes by soldiers and other witnesses. The accompanying stereoscopic photo-cards with titles of the views presented (or approximated) on the backs of the photo-cards have been noted by some reviewers to perpetuate errors by the original publishers in misidentifying the images
