To Hell and Back

Europe, 1914-1949

TELEGRAPH BOOKS OF THE YEAR AND EDITOR'S CHOICE 2015

In the summer of 1914 most of Europe plunged into a war so catastrophic that it unhinged the continent's politics and beliefs in a way that took generations to recover from. The disaster terrified its survivors, shocked that a civilization that had blandly assumed itself to be a model for the rest of the world had collapsed into a chaotic savagery beyond any comparison.
