No Glory: The Real History of the First World War


Neil Faulkner

Far from being a “war to end all wars” or a “victory for democracy”, the First World War was a military disaster and a human catastrophe, a war driven by big powers’ competition for influence around the globe.

Poetic Foreword – Last Post by Carol Ann Duffy


The First World War today
Their history and ours
How it started
Could it have been stopped?
Were the generals to blame?
How it ended
A peace to end all peace
A century of war (and counting)
Open letter
