Focused on 20 people – from a 12-year-old German girl to a French civil servant and an American woman married to a Polish aristocrat – Englund’s account of World War I examines the experiences of those outside the scope of typical histories. Drawn from all corners of the earth, the perspectives voiced here reveal how, in times of war, gender, nationality and notions of victors and vanquished fade when individual lives are lost or left in ruins. New, in dust jacket.
