Later printing. From the introduction: “Apart from a few well-used sepia images, varying from culture to culture but sharing a simple recognition of pointless carnage, the 1st World War is now largely forgotten by non-specialists, consigned to the vague area that is popular history before Hitler. Yet the outbreak of the Great War in 1914 was, if any single event can be so described, the moment at which the 20th century was born. In social, political, economic and military terms it marked the end of the confident ‘Age of Progress’ dominated by great European empires, and its passage introduced a new world order, familiar to the modem mind but unforeseen in almost every respect by the men who had unleashed it.”
