Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

World War I stands as one of history's most senseless spasms of carnage. In a riveting, suspenseful narrative with haunting echoes for our own time, Adam Hochschild brings it to life as never before. He focuses on the long-ignored moral drama of the war's critics, alongside its generals and heroes. Thrown in jail for their opposition to the war were Britain's leading investigative journalist, a future winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, and an editor who, behind bars, published a newspaper for his fellow inmates on toilet paper. These critics were sometimes intimately connected to their enemy hawks: one of Britain's most prominent women pacifist campaigners had a brother who was commander in chief on the Western Front. Two well-known sisters split so bitterly over the war that they ended up publishing newspapers that attacked each other.

Today, hundreds of military cemeteries spread across the fields of northern France and Belgium contain the bodies of millions of men who died in the war to end all wars. Can we ever avoid repeating history?

Iain Abernathy, July 28, 2014 (view all comments by Iain Abernathy)
WWI began 100 years ago today. If you're looking for something to read, I can recommend this book. It's a well-written, riveting story of the execution of the war as well as the personalities involved in fighting, promoting, and opposing the war. It focuses on Britain and Britons, but with some detail about Russia, Germany, and others. If you're only interested in strategy then don't bother; that's been covered elsewhere. The story of the war cannot be told without strategy, but this book does an excellent job of exploring motivations and relationships.
