Description
(Winner of the 2014 PEN Hessell-Tiltman Prize for the Best Work of History) (First Edition, Signed Bookplate) The author of the Wolfson Prize winner Writing the Second World War here uncovers the true legacies of World War I, many of which have been obscured by events like World War II, the cold war, and the collapse of communism shaped and reshaped attitudes to the 1914–1918 era. Exploring big themes like democracy and empire, nationalism and capitalism, and even art and poetry, David Reynolds throws light on the vast expanse of the last century and explains why the Great War is a conflict that America is still struggling to comprehend.

"Here at last among the plethora of predictable books on the anniversary of the great war is an intelligent and critical assessment ... presented with a masterly array of sources across a busy century, at once thought-provoking and thoroughly informed."—Guardian (London)

"Explores the political, cultural and social legacy of the First World War, and offers correctives to many popular delusions. Perspective is critical to a comprehension of history, and Reynolds has no peer in helping us to achieve this."—Sunday Times (London)
