About this book

After the Great War, Veterans were a new transnational mass phenomenon. This volume uses case studies to discuss the extent and impact of international veterans' organisations and draws out important comparative points between well-researched and documented movements and those that are less well-known.

Reviews

"A remarkable contribution to the transnational history of modern Europe. With this collection of innovative essays, Eichenberg and Newman challenge conventional understandings of the roles of veterans and successfully reframe the historiography of the inter-war period. Essential reading as the Centenary of the Great War now looms large." - Professor Pierre Purseigle, University of Warwick, UK

"This collection of essays is a fine contribution to the trans-national turn in the history of the Great War and its aftermath. Here is a vivid portrait of the solidarities and achievements of men and women who created a world-wide network through which ex-soldiers acted to defend their rights, their families, and their commitment to peace. Essential reading for any student of twentieth-century history." - Professor Jay Winter, Yale University, USA
