A War of Peoples, 1914-1919 provides a new perspective on the First World War, offering a concise narrative of the war from the first military actions in July 1914 until the signing of the peace treaty by Germany in July 1919. Adrian Gregory considers the sources of information available to historians and the ways in which historians have written about the war for over fifty years. This volume will appeal equally to people with little or no familiarity with the events of the war and to those who already think they know about it. It presents a thought-provoking account which reflects the changes to historians' understanding of the war. There is a great deal of emphasis on aspect of the war which are less familiar to English-speaking audiences, particularly the war in Eastern Europe, in the Balkans, and on the Italian front. A War of Peoples, 1914-1919 concludes in 1919 with a study of the fraught and complex process of peace making, a subject which is often neglected in general surveys that end on 11 November 1918.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A War of Peoples is a very good book. Gregory succeeds not only in condensing an immense amount of information into an accessible format but also in presenting to readers the state-of-the-art methodologies and approaches to the First World War. For teachers of undergraduates and secondary-school pupils, as well as for anyone wanting a concise but full account of the First World War, this history will be a valuable addition to their bookshelves. * Alexander Watson, War in History *
This is a terrific book: perhaps the best short book about the First World War, covering the military as well as the social and cultural history of the conflict. * Stefan Goebel, University of Kent *
This is an excellent book buy a leading historian of the First World War. It is full of thought-provoking ideas and contains a very useful but critical synthesis of existing scholarship. I highly recommend it * Gary Sheffield, University of Wolverhampton *
