Summary
  • This second edition of the classic bestseller by J.M. Winter, originally published by Macmillan in 1985, includes a new and up-to-date introduction. This was the first major study to highlight the paradox that a conflict that killed or maimed over two million men, also created conditions which improved the health of the civilian population. Examining both the war and its aftermath, Dr Winter surveys not only trends in population and the impact of the conflict on an entire generation, but also, more profoundly, the meaning of the literature of the period
  • "For those interested in military history, in social history or in cultural history, this book pointed the way to a new generation of scholarship in the Great War. Its reissue-issue, with a new introduction, locates this book within that ongoing historical conversation."--Jacket
