There are some useful insights in this book, but at times it loses focus about what actually happened at crucial moments of the war from the French point of view. Some parts of the book are, sad to say, rather wishy-washy. It's all very well going on about life in the trenches and the "culture of mourning" that the war produced in France, but what we need to know is - what made France different from the other combatant nations? Didn't the British, Germans, Russians, Austrians, Italians and Serbs mourn, too? The authors would have done better to follow the example of the other book in this series called "Imperial Germany and the Great War" and give us the solid, hard-hitting detail, not a sociological detour.

I brought this book as it was on my reading list for uni.
Information on French cultural history in WWI is sparse (in english that is) and so this book was very helpful in helping me to understand what went on in France before, during and after the War. Its a useful book and will help anyone who is doing a cultural or socail history of France during the Great War.

This book was brought for university and it is a good book however personally I am not overly interested in France and the Great War so struggled to read it.
