9780007116188: The Great World War 1914-1945: Who Won, Who Lost

This title reveals the truly global impact of the 1914-18 and 1939-45 conflicts and their enduring legacy in the modern world. Boundaries were re-drawn, not just on the political map, but socially too: the wars brought women into the factories and even the frontline. Newly independent nations established themselves: the wars were defining moments for Australia, Canada and New Zealand. African and Asian troops fought for the French and British Empires with very different experiences. Modern Russia has a life expectancy no greater than that achieved by 1914: perhaps no other country is still so deeply in the shadow of the Great World War.
