Product description

Love & Death in the Great War – 1st edition

Andrew J Huebner

Oxford University Press, 2018.

Hardback; 160 x 240 mm; black boards with titles in gold on spine; ix & 390 pages; illustrations within text. Original unclipped dust jacket.

The book is in fine condition.

“Americans today harbor no strong or consistent collective memory of the First World War. Ask why the country fought or what they accomplished, and ‘democracy’ is the most likely if vague response. The circulation of confusing or lofty rationales for intervention began as soon as President Woodrow Wilson secured a war declaration in April 1917. Yet amid those shifting justifications, ‘Love and Death in the Great War’ argues, was a more durable and resonant one: Americans would fight for home and family…. ‘Love and Death in the Great War’ tracks…ideas of redemptive war across public and private spaces, policy and implementation, home and front, popular culture and personal correspondence. In beautifully rendered prose, Andrew J. Huebner merges untold stories of ordinary men and women with a history of wartime culture. Studying the radiating impact of war alongside the management of public opinion, he recovers the conflict's emotional dimensions - its everyday rhythms, heartbreaking losses, soaring possibilities, and broken promises.”
