A War of Peoples, 1914-1919 provides a new perspective on the First World War, offering a concise narrative of the war from the first military actions in July 1914 until the signing of the peace treaty by Germany in July 1919. Adrian Gregory considers the sources of information available tohistorians and the ways in which historians have written about the war for over fifty years.This volume will appeal equally to people with little or no familiarity with the events of the war and to those who already think they know about it. It presents a thought-provoking account which reflects the changes to historians' understanding of the war. There is a great deal of emphasis onaspect of the war which are less familiar to English-speaking audiences, particularly the war in Eastern Europe, in the Balkans, and on the Italian front. A War of Peoples, 1914-1919 concludes in 1919 with a study of the fraught and complex process of peace making, a subject which is often neglectedin general surveys that end on 11 November 1918.
Adrian Gregory is a Fellow of Pembroke College, Oxford. He studied history at Cambridge University and has been involved in the study of the First World War for over twenty years. He has been teaching a course on the comparative history of the First World War at Oxford since 1999.
