Résumé:

"The Great War toppled four empires, cost the world 24 million dead, and sowed the seeds of another worldwide conflict twenty years later. This is the only book in the English language to offer comprehensive coverage of how Germany and Austria-Hungary, two of the key belligerents, conducted the war and what defeat meant to them. This new edition has been thoroughly updated throughout, including new developments in the historiography and, in particular, addressing new work on the cultural history of the war. This edition also includes: new material on the domestic front, covering Austria-Hungary's internal political frictions and ethnic fissures; more on Austria-Hungary and Germany's position within the wider geopolitical framework; increased coverage of the Eastern front."--Page 4 of cover.
