Description
In a multifaceted oral history that comes together "with the cumulative force of a major epic novel" (Scotsman), Swedish historian Peter Englund follows 20 people—soldiers and sailors, nurses and government workers from Britain, Russia, Germany, Australia, and South America—through World War I to give us "a complete picture of a world at war" (Literary Review, London). Through their firsthand experiences he explores the everyday aspects of war—not only the tragedy and horror, but also the absurdity, monotony and even beauty. Two of them will perish, two will become prisoners of war, two will become celebrated heroes, and two others end up as physical wrecks. One of them go mad, and another will never hear a shot fired.
