New Approaches to European History #013: Imperial Germany and the Great War, 1914-1918
Synopses & Reviews
This important new contribution to the successful textbook series New Approaches to European History explores the comprehensive impact of the First World War on Imperial Germany. It examines military aspects of the conflict, as well as the diplomacy, government, politics and industrial mobilization of wartime Germany. Unlike other existing surveys, Roger Chickering also offers a rich portrait of life on the home front: the war's pervasive effects on wealthy and poor, men and women, young and old, farmers and city-dwellers, Protestants, Catholics, and Jews. At the same time, Roger Chickering analyzes the growing burdens of war and discusses the translation of the hardship of war into political opposition. This excellent, well-illustrated study of the military, political and socio-economic effects of the First World War will be essential reading for all students of German and European history, as well as for those interested in the history of war and society.
This is the first textbook to provide a comprehensive survey of Germany's experience during the First World War. In this book, Roger Chickering examines the military aspects of the conflict, as well as the diplomacy, government and politics of wartime Germany. However, at the same time, Roger Chickering also provides an important, and rare, portrayal of life on the homefront: the war's pervasive effects on people from all walks of life and from varying religious backgrounds. This well-illustrated study will be essential reading for all students of German and European history.
This well-illustrated study is the first comprehensive survey of the impact of the First World War on Imperial Germany.

The first comprehensive survey of the impact of the First World War on Germany in any language.
