9780007116331: The Great World War 1914-45: 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.

From the Publisher:

The Great World War 1914-45 asks the question: Should not the whole period between 1914 and 1945 be recognized as one ³Great War,² a conflict that was not resolved until the extinction of the German military ambition? In this second volume, twenty eminent historians conclude their rich collaboration, asking: Who won, and who lost? Old empires fell, but new ones emerged. Settlements made in 1945 have now unraveled across eastern Europe. Postwar assumptions as to who emerged victorious and who were defeated are still open to question. This final volume reveals the very different experiences of the worldıs peoples in the midst and in the aftermath of this monumental conflict.

About the Author:

By the same team that created The Great War 1914-45, a ground-breaking analysis of global conflict: Nine of the contributors hold UK University Chairs. Others include 7 Americans, 5 Germans, 2 Russians, plus Belgian, Chinese, Japanese, Arab and other contributors.
