This complete history of the First World War is impressive. Never before has the primordial catastrophe of the 20th century been told in such a multi-layered way: comparative across Europe, global in perspective, sovereign in its presentation. Jörn Leonhard's synthesis unfolds an impressive panorama. It shows how the world went into the war and how it came out of it as a completely different one. It takes a look not only at states and nations, but also at empires in Europe and far beyond. She describes the dynamic changes in the scope of action, the rapid military developments, and the ever more rapid transformations of warring societies. And it brings to life the experiences of very different contemporaries: military men, politicians and writers, men and women, soldiers and workers. But the violent experiences of the Great War did not end with the peace treaties after 1918, but continued in Europe and throughout the world in the name of new ideas of order and radical ideologies.
