World War One changed the world forever and shaped the twentieth century. It marked the twilight of the British and French colonial empires, and signaled the emergence of Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland and Poland as new sovereign states; brought about the end of the German, Austro-Hungarian, Russian and Ottoman monarchies; and propelled the United States of America to the status of global power. After these epic changes, it is no surprise that one hundred years later, the legacy of the Great War is still part of our everyday lives.
The Doughboy Foundation is proudly associated with this notable book which has been included in the Doughboy Shop.
The two-volume book titled In the Centennial Footsteps of the Great War chronicles and explains the historical events of the Great War through photos taken by the author one hundred years later, between 2014 and 2021 in each and every theatre of this global conflict. From Sarajevo through the battlefields of Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the Pacific, all the way down to Versailles, the book covers a total of 57 different countries. At the same time, it also foreshadows how the outcome of the Great War led to World War II.
