Paul B. Miller is Assistant Professor of History at Western Maryland College.


"A powerful study of the tragic choices facing the French antiwar movement in the early twentieth century. Miller helps us see how, by 1914, the only way to fight war was to join it. This outcome, he demonstrates persuasively, was neither a betrayal of prior convictions nor a momentary response to a war crisis the speed of which surprised all observers." - Jay Winter, Columbia University "In this well-researched and in-depth analysis, Paul Miller successfully treats multiple viewpoints and highlights in a lively manner the various 'affairs' that mobilised public opinion in France at the outbreak of World War I." - Nancy Green, author of Ready-to-Wear and Ready-to-Work: A Century of Industry and Immigrants in Paris and New York
