Synopsis

The Great War and Its Aftermath 1914-1921 by Mark McAndrew, David Thomas, Philip Cummins

The Great War and Its Aftermath, 1914-1921 is a new edition of a popular Stage 5 text, revised and extended to cater for the new syllabus in NSW, and now incorporates the peacetime as well as the war. It examines the background events, the battles and the outcomes of one of the most significant conflicts in modern times. Beginning with an overview of Europe and its empires and autocrats, The Great War and Its Aftermath, 1914-1921 focuses upon the reasons for the outbreak of war in 1914 and the nature of the conflict over the following four years. Students are shown the world of the soldiers and leaders of the Great Powers while coming to understand the impact of the war upon the home fronts of both sides. The text concludes with a discussion of the reasons behind the Allied victory and an analysis of the peace settlement.
