How can we begin to make sense of the Great War now that over 100 years have passed since it ended with the defeat of Germany, Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman empire and Bulgaria, and the collapse of Tsarist Russia? The conflict had such a profound influence on world history that is it difficult to reconcile the different perspectives and draw clear conclusions. That is why this thought-provoking collection of original essays on the outcome of the war and its aftermath is of such value.

It completes the trilogy of ground-breaking volumes conceived and edited by Peter Liddle which presents the latest scholarly thinking about the Great War from an international perspective. The first two volumes – Britain Goes to War and Britain and the Widening War – made this stimulating new writing accessible to a broad readership and this final volume has the same aim.

A group of over twenty expert contributors reconsider the military reasons for the outcome of the fighting and look at the consequences for the principal nations involved. They explore the way the war and the peace settlement shaped the twentieth century and had an enduring impact within Europe and beyond.

Peter Liddle, compiler and editor of this themed essay collection, uses a slightly provocative title to remind us that Britain fought in a coalition and was not always the senior partner.

A very though provoking book.

Stand To! Journal of the Western Front Association

This book is essential reading for anybody researching into or writing about WW1 and will be rewarding for all other readers. It is the third volume of a trilogy published by Pen & Sword, the others being Britain Goes to War and The Widening War. However, Britain and Victory is far from being exclusively about the final stage of the war or being exclusively about Britain.

The book consists of 21 separate essays by leading historians; two of the contributions are about Germany, and there is one each on Russia, France, the USA, Italy and the Commonwealth. They vary greatly in theme (military, social, economic, political) and their time frames. ‘Women and the Great War’, for instance, covers the whole war while ‘That Quiet Place’ concerns how the war was memorialised from 1917 to the present.

An insightful set of essays on a broad range of war related themes.

The trilogy has added greatly to the sum of available knowledge and challenged a number of previously accepted conclusions. This final edition in the trilogy is an important work for enthusiasts, professionals and novices alike.
