The Myriad Faces of War
By

Rating
"By far the best study of Britain and the First World War that has yet been written". (London Review of Books). The Myriad Faces of War, first published in 1987, is a unique and compelling study of the First World War from the standpoint of British involvement. It explores the reasons for Britain's entry into the war, the nature and course of Britain's participation, and the far-reaching repercussions of the war on British society. The result is a rich and comprehensive chronicle of the social, political, diplomatic and military aspects of the 'Great War.' "Professor Trevor Wilson's mighty work on the first world war ...is a truly significant contribution to our understanding of what the war meant to the British people ...a disciplined, unsentimental and thoughtful book - and it also retains strongly the human touch". (Spectator). "Wilson ranges impressively over all major aspects of the conflict ...a judicious, readable overview of a monster subject". (New York Times).
