Review The Vanuished Why the First World War Failed to End 1917 1923 Review ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ø Robert Gerwarth Robert Gerwarth Ø 8 Free read A Times Literary Supplement Best Book of 2016An epic groundbreaking account of the ethnic and state violence that followed the end of World War I conflicts that would shape the course of the twentieth centuryFor the Western Allies November 11 1918 has always been a solemn date the end of fighting that had destroyed a generation but also a vindication of a terrible sacrifice with the total collapse of the principal enemies the German Empire Austria Hungary and the Ottoman Empire But for much of the rest of Europe this. Page 169 my book Joseph P Roth Nationalism is the new religion This book demonstrates convincingly how November 111918 was not the end of war particularly in Germany and Eastern and Central Europe And the nature of war changed it became ethnic based With the dissolution of the Austro Hungarian Empire at war s end into several nation states there was a violent nationalistic struggle This was also encouraged by Woodrow Wilson s 14 Points which inspired the formation of new nations particularly Point 10 The people of Austria Hungary should be accorded the freest opportunity to autonomous development Victimhood too became a significant theme in all the defeated Central Powers Germany Hungary Bulgaria and Austria Italy too felt victimized Italy was not rewarded territories that the Allies had earlier promised for aligning with them The extreme violence and upheavals of the Russian Revolution made all the new nations tremble with fear of the spread of Bolshevism To counter potential Bolshevik threats many countries became right wing dictatorships like Poland Italy and Hungary Of these perceived threats scapegoats were the Jews this would culminate in the HolocaustPage 122 23 Germany Freikorps The paramilitary groups were bastions of soldierly camaraderie and order in what the activist perceived as a hostile world of democratic egalitarianism and communist internationalism They perceived themselves as the nucleus of a new society of warriors representing both the eternal values of the nation and new authoritarian concepts for a state in which the nation could thrivePage 254 Entire countries in Central and Eastern Europe were to be purged of those deemed racially or politically undesirable The distinction between civilians and combatants already blurred during the First World War completely vanished during 1918 1923This book traces the origins of the Second World War to the nationethnic cleansing that took place from 1917 to 1923 After there was a brief respite then it started all over again as the democracies lost ground and courage and the dictatorships built up their powerNote that this book has 267 pages of actual text with many pages devoted to footnotes and bibliography The maps were inadeuate cities and regions mentioned were not on the maps I used google map

Review The Vanuished Why the First World War Failed to End 1917 1923 Review ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ø Robert Gerwarth Robert Gerwarth Ø 8 Free read Was a day with no meaning as a continuing nightmarish series of conflicts engulfed country after countryIn The Vanuished a highly original and gripping work of history Robert Gerwarth asks us to think again about the true legacy of the First World War In large part it was not the fighting on the Western Front that proved so ruinous to Europe's future but the devastating aftermath as countries on both sides of the original conflict were savaged by revolutions pogroms mass expulsions and further major military clashes. A fascinating book that explores how the strife experienced by the defeated and other combatant nations of world war one seeded the expansively genocidal second war The opening chapter which begins with the expulsion of Greeks from Smyrna in 1923 and the uite horrific murder of the Orthodox archbishop by a Turkish mob sets out the line of the thesis clearly that the varied civil wars revolutions counter revolutions ethnic conflicts and border disputes that visited Russia Germany Turkey Italy and the Hapsburg successor states marked a distinct change in the way some European societies saw themselves and others and how war was perceived and conducted The 1919 1923 period is essentially a precursor to 1939 1945 The first throb of Barbarossa starts here What follows in the book are a series of potted histories of the course of various conflicts For the uninitiated these will serve as a useful primer especially for those used to seeing world war one through an Allied filter For the non layman it s debatable whether Gerwarth adds anything new to the better documented histories say Weimar insurrections or the Russian Civil War However Gerwarth does shine his light in some unusual places like Hungary and Bulgaria and an emphasis on Turkey and the example Ataturk provided for western fascists is welcome Overall it s a pretty good book to recommend to anyone who needs reminding of what can happen when multiculturalism is trumped by rampant nationalism and catastrophist notions of the enemy within the enemy other who lives just down the road

Review The Vanuished Why the First World War Failed to End 1917 1923 Review ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ø Robert Gerwarth Robert Gerwarth Ø 8 Free read In the years immediately after the armistice millions would die across central eastern and southeastern Europe before the Soviet Union and a series of rickety and exhausted small new states would come into being It was here in the ruins of Europe that extreme ideologies such as fascism would take shape and ultimately emerge triumphantAs absorbing in its drama as it is unsettling in its analysis The Vanuished is destined to transform our understanding of not just the First World War but the twentieth century as a who. The book is a historical masterpiece covers the history just after the end of the First Great War detailing all the travails of the new republics and nations which came into existence after the demise of the great Landed empires Romonovs German Riche Habsburg and the Ottomans of the 19th century The fall of these mighty empires resulted in a great chaos and rude political awakening for millions of its subjects who suddenly found themselves confronting a variety of hitherto unknown and untested political ideologies which led to civil war in some places and putsch in others Some of the new nations went into a revivalist spiral of vengeful hate against their conuerors which resulted in the Second Great War of 1940 The growth of right wing fascism makes completes sense to me now after reading about the whole context of the aftermath of the First Great War It s a fascinating read for any fan of history
