Product description

Review

'… much needed … Professor Brian Bond makes a thought-provoking bid to claw the First World War back to history, away from popular myth … Brian Bond's arresting, sensible book, concentrating in 100-odd lucid pages the historical evidence against the myth, is a gift to teachers and a welcome antidote to the distorted popular image of the first world war. It may be long before historians win their battle, but The Unquiet Western Front shows where the lines should be drawn.' The Spectator

'The Unquiet Western Front … is an effective history of changing social attitudes in twentieth- century Britain.' Writer's News

'The lectures must have been entertaining. The book version is eminently readable and always stimulating.' The Times Literary Supplement

'Anyone who wants to reflect about the Great War and its role in shaping modern British thinking about war must read [this].' History Today

'… an important critique of the anti-war culture that is so influential in framing popular suppositions today.' Royal United Services Institute Journal

'… the subtlety and persuasiveness of his argument and the richness and range of his supporting material is impossible to condense … No one interested in the history of 1914–1918 can afford not to read and ponder this book. It opens windows into so many more places than its title might suggest.' The Society for Army Historical Research Journal

'… a well documented and carefully considered attack on the treatment of the First World War by the literary world and the populist media …' The Salisbury Review

'The Unquiet Western Front is a concisely compelling defence of the British war effort … [it] is required reading for anyone who wishes to understand scholarship on the Great War as we approach the ninetieth anniversary of the war's outbreak.' BBC History Magazine

'… useful and provocative …' Cultural and Social History

Book Description

Britain's role in the First World War has been portrayed mainly through literature, films and plays, in most cases with a marked unhistorical, anti-war spirit. This 2002 book follows the controversy from 1918 to the present, and concludes that historians are finally permitting the war to be placed in proper perspective.
