Abstract

One of the most violent conflicts in the history of civilization, World War I has been strangely forgotten in American culture. It has become a ghostly war fought in a haze of memory, often seen merely as a distant preamble to World War II. In this volume, the author assesses the impact of the Great War across the twentieth century and shows how events in that turbulent century--particularly World War II, the Cold War, and the collapse of Communism--shaped and reshaped attitudes to 1914-18.
