What an excellent & satisfying read. "The Great Silence" examines the transformation of life (primarily in Britain) in the two years after the first world war...and does so using chapters labelled after stages of grief and other human emotional states. It follows a large cross-section of society, and never loses its focus on the transformative power of traumatic on the people within this society. It's effective as a secondary history resource AND effective as an epic story worthy of film.
