“The Great War (1914-1918) – no one knew then it would be the first of two – transformed the world in ways that no one fully understood at the time. Perceptive individuals shared the not quite intelligible feeling that something had gone terribly wrong and would never again be right. The Great War was the first war in history to be fought primarily by the middle class.”
