Between the Wars: 1919-1939

Between the Wars: 1919-1939
In this book Philip Ziegler examines the major international turning points - cultural and social, political and military - that led the world from one war to another. He touches on all parts of the world where history was being made. It 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.

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 this book, Philip Ziegler examines Gandhi's March to the Sea and the Chaco War in South America alongside Hitler's rise to power. Each chapter bears the stamp of Ziegler's scholarship: a keen eye for the telling anecdote, elegant and fluid prose, and calm and fair judgments. In a world that grows ever more uncertain, its perspective on how hopes of peace can dissolve into the promise of war becomes more relevant with each passing day.
