Between the wars, 1919-1939

Ziegler, Philip2017
Books
At the end of 1918 one prescient American historian began to write a history of the Great War. 'What will you call it?' he was asked. 'The First World War' was his bleak response. In Between the Wars Philip Ziegler examines the major international turning points - cultural and social as well as political and military - that led the world from one war to another. His perspective is panoramic, touching on all parts of the world where history was being made, giving equal weight to Gandhi's March to the Sea and the Japanese invasion of China as to Hitler's rise to power. Told in twenty-one chapters - one for each intervening year - this is the tragic story of a world determined that the horrors of the First World War would never be repeated yet committed to a path which in hindsight was inevitably destined to end in a second, even more devastating conflict.
