Book Description:

It was supposed to be "the war to end all wars." Instead, it opened the floodgate to a century of ethnic, religious, and ideological conflicts throughout the globe, all of it traceable to some extent to the entangled animosities and unprecedented carnage of World War I and the shortsighted, easily shattered peace that followed it.
