Summary
"This account of the events of 1918 is the first major reappraisal of the end of the war for more than twenty years, and describes what is in some respects a forgotten chapter in history.The soldiers who returned to Britain in November 1918 were not the martyrs or victims of popular memory - they were a victorious army, and were greeted as heroes.their generals too, often demonized by posterity, were at the time lionized for their efficient handling of the war's vital endgame."--BOOK JACKET
