14-18 Understanding the Great War

Stephane Audoin-Rouzeau, Annette Becker, "14-18: Understanding the Great War"
ISBN: 0809046423, 0809046431 | 2002 | EPUB | 288 pages | 406 KB


With this brilliantly innovative book, reissued for the one-hundredth anniversary of the beginning of the First World War, Stephane Audoin-Rouzeau and Annette Becker have shown that the Great War was the matrix from which all subsequent disasters of the twentieth century were formed. They identify three often neglected or denied aspects of the conflict that are essential for understanding the war: First, what inspired its unprecedented physical brutality, and what were the effects of tolerating such violence? Second, how did citizens of the belligerent states come to be driven by vehement nationalistic and racist impulses? Third, how did the tens of millions bereaved by the war come to terms with the agonizing pain? With its strikingly original interpretative strength and its wealth of compelling documentary evidence, 14-18: Understanding the Great War has established itself as a classic in the history of modern warfare.

"A pioneering, impassioned book." ?Eric Roussel, Le Figaro Litteraire

"Extraordinarily lucid on complex themes . . . [A] sophisticated attempt to recover the war's significance . . . Audoin-Rouzeau and Becker are directors of the Historial de la Grande Guerre in Peronne, and their book offers a splendidly readable synoptic introduction to the comparative and interdisciplinary work of that research center." ?Hew Strachan, Foreign Affairs
