Customer Review

on March 2, 2014
This study moves on from contemplating only the carnage in the trenches after the stalemate of late 1914, to considering how the memory of the Great War on its various fronts impacted on politicians of all the countries involved in the following decades. Not least, in pointing out how the actions of the British and French in dividing up the Middle East along artificial lines after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire (the new country of Iraq, for instance, was an arbitrary combination of the provinces of Basra, Baghdad and the Kurds in the north), have led to the current difficulties in Iraq and the disasters in Syria. A "long shadow" indeed!
