1914-1918: The History of the First World War [9780718197957]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

1914-1918 , David Stevenson's history of the First World War, has been acclaimed as the definitive one-volume account of the conflict.

In the summer of 1914 Europe exploded into a frenzy of mass violence. The war that followed had global repercussions, destroying four empires and costing millions of lives.

Even the victorious countries were scarred for a generation, and we still today remain within the conflict's shadow. In this major analysis David Stevenson re-examines the causes, course and impact of this 'war to end war', placing it in the context of its era and exposing its underlying dynamics.

His book provides a wide-ranging international history, drawing on insights from the latest research. It offers compelling answers to the key questions about how this terrible struggle unfolded: questions that remain disturbingly relevant for our own time.

It's harder to imagine a better single-volume comprehensive history of the conflict than this superb study . (Ian Kershaw).

Perhaps the best comprehensive one-volume history of the war yet written . ( New Yorker ).

David Stevenson is the real deal...His defining characteristic is his outstanding rigour as an historian...tremendously clever . (Niall Ferguson).

This history of the 1914-1918 conflict surpasses all others. It is tough, erudite and comprehensive . ( Independent ).
