Colouring in Craonne

Review of new publications in the field of First World War studies by Jay Winter in the TLS. My own book is one of those reviewed – but mostly this is a very interesting meditation on the differences between the way the war is remembered in France and in Britain – and is particularly informative for British historians who have got used to how friendly the study of the war is over here.

    It’s too good, Dan – how I can spend one episode of ‘Things We Forgot To Remember’ puncturing the myth of the Somme this autumn, if you’ve already punctured it? Let’s hope for my sake that the actual July 1st coverage reverts to Blackadder.
