Loyalty and Rebellion During WWI

Email a Friend

Adam Hochschild discusses World War I, which stands as one of history’s most senseless spasms of carnage. In To End All Wars: A Story of Loyalty and Rebellion, 1914-1918, he focuses on the long-ignored moral drama of the war’s critics, alongside its generals and heroes. Thrown in jail for their opposition to the war were Britain’s leading investigative journalist, a future winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, and an editor who, behind bars, published a newspaper on toilet paper for his fellow inmates. He looks at whether we can ever avoid repeating history.
