"In this seminal work, Ian F. W. Beckett challenges the cliched images of the Great War that have come to dominate popular culture. Rather than dismissing the War as an exercise in mindless futility, he argues that, on the contrary, it was vital to the national interests of its participants, and shows how what originated as a European affair became a global event involving not only the extended colonial empires of European nations but also Japan, China, the Ottoman Empire, Latin America and the United States."--BOOK JACKET.

Following his acclaimed The 1st Royal Irish Rifles in the Great War, James Taylor now completes his study of the regiment's Regular battalions. Having been part of 3rd Division in the original Expeditionary Force, they fought at places such as Mons, Le Cateau, the Aisne, La Bassée, Somme, Messines, and Bellewaarde, ending the war as part of 36th (Ulster) Division. They suffered in excess of 1,400 fatalities, including men from every county in Ireland. The book gives biographical details on over 320 officers and some other ranks. In addition to the awards and casualty lists, details are given of the 269 men who were court-martialled, including a transcript of the trial of the only member to be executed.

In this, his most famous work, Marc Ferro looks at the realities faced by the millions who fought in the Great War and their families at home. In doing so, he presents us with one of the most significant reappraisals of the war ever written.Marc Ferro's most famous work, The Great War looks at the realities faced by those men and their families at home. Mapping tensions old and new, he offers an overview to the Great War that is unrivalled in vision or in scope.From detailing the meteoric rise of the bureaucratic classes prior to 1914, to charting the horrors of trench warfare, Ferro travels well beyond the remit of 'historian'. In particular he documents the reactions of the warring countries' socialist and labour organisations to the conflict.By doing so, Ferro has presented us with one of the most significant reappraisals of the Great War ever to be written, one that rightfully takes its place as a Routledge Classic.

The war on Western Front from 1914 to 1918 remains one of the notoriously great tragedies of the twentieth century. Most people hold it in their minds as a milestone in modern history, yet many of them know less about this devastating clash of nations than they would like - and they would be interested to discover more. Paddy Griffith's short history of the conflict has been written with them in mind - it provides an accessible primer to an enormous and fascinating subject. His account is aimed at an English-speaking readership, and he concentrates on the part played by British Expeditionary Force and the Americans in the conflict. The French and German perspectives are also explained and the wider political and strategic evolution of the war as a whole is laid out as essential background.
