One of the most violent conflicts in the history of civilization, World War I has been strangely forgotten in American culture. It has become a ghostly war fought in a haze of memory, often seen merely as a distant preamble to World War II. In The Long Shadow critically acclaimed historian David Reynolds seeks to broaden our vision by assessing the impact of the Great War across the twentieth century.

Well written book which documents how much we are still affected by The Great War. Includes adequate footnotes that don't get in the way of the story. An excellent follow-up to The End of Tsarist Russia (D.C.B. Lieven 2015). For me, this latter book was like reading a PhD thesis/dissertation, though it really clarifies the mess Europe was in from 1905 onwards to the present day.
