This is the first book to study the cultural impact of the Armistice of 11 November 1918. It contains 14 new essays from scholars working in literature, music, art history and military history. The Armistice brought hopes for a better future, as well as sadness, disappointment and rage. Many people in all the combatant nations asked hard questions about the purpose of the war. These questions are explored in complex and nuanced ways in the literature, music and art of the period. This book revisits the silence of the Armistice and asks how its effect was to echo into the following decades. The essays are genuinely interdisciplinary and are written in a clear, accessible style.

MEDIA REVIEWS
One thing is certain: among the thousands of books published to mark the centenary of the Great War, there will be few, if any, which examine the immediate aftermath of the fighting as originally, incisively and movingly as the collections of essays in 'The Silent Morning'. -- .
