Une telle plongée dans l'univers du conflit est rendue possible par les nombreux témoignages que ces hommes ont laissés, carnets, souvenirs et lettres, et qui sortent depuis quelques années des tiroirs où ils dormaient. Ce livre veut donner la parole à ces hommes directement : ils ne sont pas vus et racontés ici par leurs chefs, par des observateurs prudemment restés à l'arrière, ou par ceux qui étaient sur le front avec l'intention de produire une oeuvre littéraire. Ces hommes ordinaires disent avec précision, parce qu'ils l'ont vécue, l'horrible réalité de la vie matérielle, dans la boue, sous les obus ou face aux balles des mitrailleuses, leurs réactions à la violence commandée et subie, l'expression de leurs sentiments, de leurs espoirs, de leur désespoir. Ce qu'ils pensent de la guerre et de la paix, de leurs chefs et des gens à l'arrière. Comment ils se comportent vis-à-vis de leurs ennemis. Les valeurs qui apparaissent dans leurs récits sont celles de la vie civile en temps de paix, confrontée aux exigences d'une guerre inhumaine.

DIVAlong with millions of other Frenchmen, Louis Barthas, a thirty-five-year-old barrelmaker from a small wine-growing town, was conscripted to fight the Germans in the opening days of World War I. Corporal Barthas spent the next four years in near-ceaseless combat, wherever the French army fought its fiercest battles: Artois, Flanders, Champagne, Verdun, the Somme, the Argonne. Barthas’ riveting wartime narrative, first published in France in 1978, presents the vivid, immediate experiences of a frontline soldier. This excellent new translation brings Barthas’ wartime writings to English-language readers for the first time. His notebooks and letters represent the quintessential memoir of a “poilu,” or “hairy one,” as the untidy, unshaven French infantryman of the fighting trenches was familiarly known. Upon Barthas’ return home in 1919, he painstakingly transcribed his day-to-day writings into nineteen notebooks, preserving not only his own story but also the larger story of the unnumbered soldiers who never returned. Recounting bloody battles and endless exhaustion, the deaths of comrades, the infuriating incompetence and tyranny of his own officers, Barthas also describes spontaneous acts of camaraderie between French poilus and their German foes in trenches just a few paces apart. An eloquent witness and keen observer, Barthas takes his readers directly into the heart of the Great War./div

Les préparatifs de son centenaire en témoignent une fois encore : la société française porte un regard intense, souvent chargé d’émotion, sur la Première Guerre mondiale. En 100 mots et 128 pages, André Loez propose un point unique des savoirs accumulés et questions débattues par les historiens à propos de la Grande Guerre. S’il fait la part belle aux citations et aux mots de l’époque, c’est pour donner aussi à entendre la voix des contemporains et faire part de leur expérience de cette guerre. Mot après mot, sont ainsi racontés l’entrée en guerre et ses causes (« Sarajevo », « alliances »...), le déroulement du conflit (« bataille de la Marne », « Gallipoli », « révolutions »...), ses acteurs (« Clemenceau », « Pétain », « soldats coloniaux », « munitionnettes »...), la vie des soldats du front (« tranchées », « permission », « barbelé »...) et celle des sociétés à l’arrière (« inflation », « propagande »...), l’empreinte laissée par la guerre (« anciens combattants », « monuments aux morts », « Der des ders »...), sa mémoire (« cinéma », « musées »...) et enfin des termes qui font débat parmi les historiens (« brutalisation », « guerre totale »).

Comment survivre à l'enfer ? Comment expliquer philosophiquement, politiquement, spirituellement, une telle boucherie ? Comment demeurer un homme au sein du chaos ? Le vertige de la Grande Guerre nous est devenu insaisissable. Le livre d'Emmanuel Godo rend la parole à ceux qui l'ont vécu. Ce sont eux qui nous racontent leur départ au front, au nom des idéaux patriotiques ; leur épreuve du feu, du fond des tranchées ; leur quête de signification, face à l'abîme entre les doctrines et les faits. Français, Allemands, Américains, Anglais, Tchèques..., ce sont tous des écrivains, des intellectuels, des militants. Chacun essaie, à sa façon, de donner sens à l'insensé. Pour le socialiste Barbusse, il s'agit de faire la guerre à la guerre. Pour l'agnostique Junger, de construire un homme nouveau. Pour le catholique Teilhard de Chardin, de redécouvrir le prix de la foi. Pour eux, comme pour tous les autres témoins convoqués dans ce livre, il faut humaniser l'inhumanité. Nourri d'une riche documentation, porté par un vrai souffle, cet essai répond aux questions que nous ne cessons de nous poser un siècle après 1914.

Volume II of the Oxford History of the British Empire examines the history of British worldwide expansion from the Glorious Revolution of 1689 to the end of the Napoleonic Wars, a crucial phase in the creation of the modern British Empire. This is the age of General Wolfe, Clive of India, and Captain Cook. The international team of experts deploy the latest scholarly research to trace and analyse development and expansion over more than a century. They show how trade, warfare, and migration created an Empire, at first overwhelmingly in the Americas but later increasingly in Asia. Although the Empire was ruptured by the American Revolution, it survived and grew into the British Empire that was to dominate the world during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. series blurb The Oxford History of the British Empire is a major new assessment of the Empire in the light of recent scholarship and the progressive opening of historical records. It deals with the interaction of British and non-western societies from the Elizabethan era to the late twentieth century, aiming to provide a balanced treatment of the ruled as well as the rulers, and to take into account the significance of the Empire for the peoples of the British Isles. It explores economic and social trends as well as political.

Edmund Burke prided himself on being a practical statesman, not an armchair philosopher. Yet his responses to specific problems - rebellion in America, the abuse of power in India and Ireland, or revolution in France - incorporated theoretical debates within jurisprudence, economics, religion, moral philosophy and political science. Moreover, the extraordinary rhetorical force of Burke's speeches and writings quickly secured his reputation as a gifted orator and literary stylist. This Companion provides a comprehensive assessment of Burke's thought, exploring all his major writings from his early treatise on aesthetics to his famous polemic, Reflections on the Revolution in France. It also examines the vexed question of Burke's Irishness and seeks to determine how his cultural origins may have influenced his political views. Finally, it aims both to explain and to challenge interpretations of Burke as a romantic, a utilitarian, a natural law thinker and founding father of modern conservatism.

Considered by many the greatest war novel of all time, All Quiet on the Western Front is Erich Maria Remarque’s masterpiece of the German experience during World War I. I am young, I am twenty years old; yet I know nothing of life but despair, death, fear, and fatuous superficiality cast over an abyss of sorrow. . . . This is the testament of Paul Bäumer, who enlists with his classmates in the German army during World War I. They become soldiers with youthful enthusiasm. But the world of duty, culture, and progress they had been taught breaks in pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches. Through years of vivid horror, Paul holds fast to a single vow: to fight against the principle of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against one another . . . if only he can come out of the war alive. Look for special features inside. Join the Random House Reader’s Circle for author chats and more. “The world has a great writer in Erich Maria Remarque. He is a craftsman of unquestionably first rank, a man who can bend language to his will. Whether he writes of men or of inanimate nature, his touch is sensitive, firm, and sure.”—The New York Times Book Review From the Trade Paperback edition.

We're right in the middle of World War I, deep in the trenches. The soldiers are confronted by unimaginable suffering and violent death on a daily basis. Considered as nothing more than cannon fodder by their superiors, they try desperately to survive. Partly as an act of defiance in the face of hardship, partly as the ultimate irony, the soldiers nickname their regiment after the famous Parisian cabaret club 'Folies Bergère'. They laugh and joke, they write, they draw, they fight, they die in appalling circumstances, they kill themselves, they lose their minds. And then one of their number is sentenced to death by firing squad... and miraculously survives...

An NYRB Classics Original Winner of the Scott Moncrieff Prize for Translation 1915: Jean Dartemont heads off to the Great War, an eager conscript. The only thing he fears is missing the action. Soon, however, the vaunted “war to end all wars” seems like a war that will never end: whether mired in the trenches or going over the top, Jean finds himself caught in the midst of an unimaginable, unceasing slaughter. After he is wounded, he returns from the front to discover a world where no one knows or wants to know any of this. Both the public and the authorities go on talking about heroes—and sending more men to their graves. But Jean refuses to keep silent. He will speak the forbidden word. He will tell them about fear. John Berger has called Fear “a book of the utmost urgency and relevance.” A literary masterpiece, it is also an essential and unforgettable reckoning with the terrible war that gave birth to a century of war.
