A Short and Irreverent History of World War One Complete with Uninformed Opinion, Universal Distain, Inevitable Errors and a Considerable Amount of Bad Language by Nick Wale Published byRock Creek Consulting on August 8th 2013 Genres:Military, World War I Pages: 22
Len's Summary: A short, sweet, often funny, cliché-ridden and irreverent, but not error-free look at the conflict published to take advantage of the centennial.
The Centennial commemorations are over, but WW1 remains a relevant area of study because of its enormous impact on the 20th and 21st centuries: Many present-day geographic tensions come from the post-war peace and drawing of boundaries. More families than ever are seeking to understand the war’s impact on their ancestors. The war had a profound impact on all facets of society, including post-war re-building. At the time of this writing, the influenza epidemic of 1918-19 is again newsworthy.
In 2020 we are working to increase engagement and communication with the membership. This will include: regular publication of our Journal, World War One Illustrated, and our newsletter, Here and There; a more regular social media presence; and a refreshed website.
