On the night of 7 November 1918 French troops at La Capelle, on the Western Front, saw a huge white flag: the Germans were crossing the line to seek peace. But who were these Germans and what exactly did they represent? By the time they had signed an armistice, four days later, not even they knew. The Kaiser's Reich had collapsed and Germany faced chaos, while the war in Eastern Europe continued. This book traces the transition from war to peace across Europe. This book weaves politics, ideas, social life, fears, aspirations and harsh realities into a seamless reconstruction of life experienced at a great turning-point of history. review >>>> Sometimes the toughest history to write is the "glue logic", the narrative that covers the world between the cracks. "1918" is such a book. 616 perfect pp & nearly a kilo & a half packed for post, 2 photo sections amidships.
