The authors identify three often neglected or denied aspects of the Great War that are essential for understanding the conflict. First, what inspired its unprecedented physical brutality, and what were the effects of tolerating such violence? Second, how did citizens of the belligerent states come to be driven by vehement nationalistic and racist impulses? Third, how did the tens of millions bereaved by the war come to terms with the agonizing pain? Notes, Index. 280p. .
