A complete history of the Great War is of course impossible till it is completed and terms of peace are adjusted.

There are, however, several small books which deal with diplomacy alone or the general events of the war up to the date of publication; and there are also several series of large, comprehensive works which are in progress and of which several volumes have already been issued. The most important of both types of war history are included in the following list: Allen, George H., Whitehead, Henry C., and Chadwick, Admiral F. E.

The Great War. A series of non-partisan volumes on the causes of and motives for war; on the mobilization of the moral and physical forces; on the conduct of the hostilities; and on the final results.

The official correspondence at the outbreak of the war was published by the governments concerned, in sets more or less complete, besides which there are numerous reprints and collections made by individuals. The German government has published its own “White Book” in an official English version. The following are the principal sets of such collections : American Association for International Conciliation, Official Documents

Regarding the European War, Series I-XIV (Nos. 83-90, 93-96, 101, 103, 104.) Contains the British White Paper, German White Book, Russian Orange Book, Austrian Red Book, Italy's Green Book, Serbian Blue Book, Official Japanese Documents, Turkish Official Documents, etc.all in English versions.
