KIRKUS REVIEW

A thoughtful, intelligent, controversial piece of work, which reviews the war years from the point of view of a longer perspective that highlights the moral and economic forces as the foci of the struggle, and provides supplementary reading for other Great War histories. It covers events in all countries in separate chapters, the campaigns of military, political, economic agencies and the growth of propaganda; it covers the condition and fate of the civilian, war-time governments and types of control, labor, industry, agriculture, morale, etc., etc. It's an ambitious job, with a general approach, that should help to clarify the issues, deep-seated, rather than the obvious, that were involved. For the militarist as well as the man in the street, for the serious student and the above-average reader.
