This important study examines the politics and social situation of the eight million Frenchmen who served in the Great War.

'It has to be good news that Prost's exemplary study can now be appreciated by a new generation of monoglot readers.' History "Prost's conclusions are persuasively argued, and historians of the verteran experience elsewhere would do well to take his book as a yardstick against which to measure their own work." Canadian Military History
