Read full description of the books:



A magisterial reinterpretation of the place of the Great War in modern history.

One of the most violent conflicts in the history of civilization,
World War I has been strangely forgotten in American
culture. It has become a ghostly war fought in a haze of
memory, often seen merely as a distant preamble to World
War II. In The Long Shadow, critically acclaimed historian David
Reynolds seeks to broaden our vision by assessing the impact
of the Great War across the twentieth century. He shows how
events in that turbulent century—particularly World War II,
the Cold War, and the collapse of Communism—shaped and
reshaped attitudes to 1914–18.


Exploring big themes such as democracy and empire, nationalism
and capitalism, as well as art and poetry, The Long
Shadow is stunningly broad in its historical perspective. Reynolds
throws light on the vast expanse of the last century and
explains why 1914–18 is a conflict that America is still struggling
to comprehend.
