This study of World War I crosses the boundaries of national histories to examine the various connections between the 400-mile-long Western Front and the home fronts of the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Canada, Australia, the United States, and other participants. A thorough reexamination of the Great War has been underway since the 1970s and this book draws on enormously rich primary and secondary sources to synthesize a complex event, rethinking the patterns of war, society, culture, and governance in the early twentieth century.
