Empires, Soldiers, and Citizens 2/e offers a vivid range of eyewitness perspectives - from female munitions workers to Indian troops in France - which explore the social, cultural, and military dimensions of World War I. This second edition includes added material to reflect the very latest historical thinking.
  • Combines documents and themes that have proven successful in the first edition with new sources and topics that are currently at the forefront of historical debate and research
  • Now features 59 new documents which illustrate the imperial dimensions of the conflict and broaden the coverage of 'war culture' and developments in Eastern Europe
  • Documents have been included which pay particular attention to the experiences and perspectives of ordinary people, whose voices are often underrepresented in broad accounts
  • The bibliography has been expanded and completely updated, complemented by a new series of maps and illustrations
