Facing Armageddon: The First World War Experience

£39.99

Product description

Facing Armageddon is the first scholarly work on the 1914-18 war to explore, on a worldwide basis, the real nature of the participants' experience. Sixty-four scholars from all over the globe, including the USA, Russia, Germany, Italy, France, Holland and the UK, describe their research into what civilians and servicemen passed through, on the land, the sea and in the air. We can see clearly now how the First World War has shaped the fundamental character of the twentieth century. The Second World War and the Cold War were among its direct, long-term consequences. Without an awareness of its effects on the individuals and societies involved, perceptible even now, we cannot fully comprehend the modern world. Facing Armageddon, lucidly written and vividly illustrated, is aimed at those, specialists, students and general readers alike, who seek a deeper understanding of human conflict in our times.

A Pen & Sword Select edition of the book first published in 1996. Contains four sections of b/w plates plus illustrations within the text. The substantial book is in fine condition apart from bumped spine ends. The jacket has some creasing to spine ends and along edges, plus rubbing and small nicks to corners.
