Product description


"...an outstanding historiographical study...the book is a very well written, well researched, and interesting study--a must read for advanced history students who are interested in a comparative analysis of World War I or preparing for comprehensive exams."

"This is a book for historians, students, and serious buffs. It is as much about the nature of historical inquiry as it has evolved in twentieth century Britain, France, and Germany as it is about various interpretations of the meaning of war. This kind of comparative analysis over such a huge and varied literature is rare, perhaps unprecedented, and certainly welcome. A rich and fascinating book, it deserves a wide readership."
-History: Review of New Books

Book Description

Since the Armistice, a vast literature has been produced on the First World War. This 2005 book is a comparative analysis of the ways in which this history has been written. It identifies three generations of historians, film directors and writers who have provided military, social and cultural interpretations of the war.
