Editorial Reviews

Review

"An admirable piece of research, thorough, exhaustive, and painstaking.”
—American Historical Review


"[In] this scholarly and objective study of great interest and value, we see the romantic illusion of the pre-war decade, the bluster of the fire-eaters . . . being paid for in the disillusion which followed the easy triumph of the first few months. . . . Instead of regular pay, food, clothing, and unselfish leadership, the rank and file were given rhetoric and general orders.”
—Times (London) Literary Supplement
