Abstract:

"[This book] firmly places the First World War in the context of imperialism. Set to overturn conventional accounts of what happened during this, the first truly international conflict, it extends the study of the First World War beyond the confines of Europe and the Western Front.

From the origins of World War One to its bloody (and largely unknown) aftermath, [this book] is distinguished by its long chronological coverage, first person battle and home front accounts, its pan-European and global emphasis and the integration of cultural considerations with political."--Provided by publisher.
