"This is a book to make one feel deeply and painfully, and also to think hard."--Christopher Hitchens, New York Times Book Review "Hochschild brings fresh drama to the story, and explores it in provocative ways . . . Exemplary in all respects."--Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post "In this deeply moving history of the so-called Great War, those opposing its mindless folly receive equal billing with the politicians, generals, and propagandists obdurately insisting on its perpetuation. Implicit in Adam Hochschild's account is this chilling warning: once governments become captive of wars they purport to control, they turn next on their own people." --Andrew J. Bacevich, author of Washington Rules: America's Path to Permanent War "Adam Hochschild is the rare historian who fuses deep scholarship with novelistic flair. In his hands, World War I becomes a clash not only of empires and armies, but of individuals: king and Kaiser, warriors and pacifists, coal miners and aristocrats. Epic yet human-scaled, this is history for buffs and novices alike, a stirring and provocative exploration of the Great War and the nature of war itself." --Tony Horwitz, author of A Voyage Long and Strange "In prose as compelling as a masterful novel, Hochschild illuminates the lives of those who consigned millions to oblivion, and also introduces us to those who fiercely opposed the carnage--those who imagined, as we might, that the world could be otherwise. We emerge from this exemplary book with the knowledge that war is not inevitable, and those who work for its abolition inherit their dedication from sane men and women of great moral strength who recognized, as we must, that the future depended upon them. Hochschild's accomplishment, as a writer and historian, is formidable and inspiring." --Carolyn Forch�, editor of AGAINST FORGETTING: 20th Century Poetry of Witness "The lives of the author's many characters dovetail elegantly in this moving, accessible book...An ambitious narrative that presents a teeming worldview through intimate, human portraits." --Kirkus Reviews "An original, engrossing account that gives the war's opponents (largely English) prominent place . . . Hochschild paints equally vivid, painful portraits of now obscure civilians and soldiers who waged a bitter, often heroic, and, Hochschild admits, unsuccessful antiwar struggle." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "This is a book to make one feel deeply and painfully, and also to think hard."--Christopher Hitchens, "New York Times Book Review" "Hochschild brings fresh drama to the story, and explores it in provocative ways . . .
