Originally published in 1975, The Great War and Modern Memory won the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award, and was named by the Modern Library one of the twentieth century's 100 Best Nonfiction Books. Erudite yet emotionally affecting, it remains as gripping today as ever: a literate, literary, and illuminating account of the cataclysmic upheaval that decisively severed western civilization into unmistakable notions of before and after. The Great War changed a generation, ushered in the modern era, and revolutionized how novelists, poets, memoirists, dramatists, essayists, and other literary artists saw the world.--From publisher description."@en ;
