About this product
- DescriptionFor France, the decade and a half before the Great War were years of plenty. In contrast, the two decades after - with over one million of its people dead and one million wounded - were years of want, loss, misery, and fear. In 1914, France went to war convinced of victory. In 1939, France went to war again, this time dreading defeat. Benjamin Franklin Martin examines daily life, the prevailing national mood, and the attitudes of France's prime ministers in July 1914 and August 1939, the months preceding the two world wars. In distinctive and vividly compelling prose, Martin recounts how the legacy of the Great War led to a struggle for the very soul of France.
- Author BiographyBenjamin Franklin Martin is the Katheryn J., Lewis C., and Benjamin Price Professor of History at Louisiana State University and the author of five books, most recently France in 1938.
