Industry Reviews

"The translation of the collective work by Fridenson is, in fact, part of a new series dedicated to the 'Legacy of the Great War' published by Berg...That series has already produced translations of excellent works on the war, such as Stephane Audoin-Rouzeau's Men at War 1914-18 (1993) and Antoine Prost's In the Wake of War (1992)." --The International History Review

"Another in Berg's fine series entitled 'The Legacy of the Great War', this translation offers ten essays adeptly selected to cover the breadth of the French experience. [...] ...the essays provide an important window on a society which, more than most, was consumed by the Great War." --Canadian Military History
