'In this volume, the first of two, eleven historians from Britain, France, Germany and the US have undertaken a major exercise in 'the social and cultural history of modern warfare'. Teamwork permits a range of research in the archives of three nations almost impossible for an individual, and the vast amount of information contained here will be a constant recourse for future enquirers.' London Review of Books '... the most powerful, distinguished and innovative work of recent social history to be published in the last twenty years ... to undertake a comparative, historical analysis of three of the world's most challenging capital cities and to complete it to this standard is unprecedented to the knowledge of this reviewer ... the European historiography of the future is already with us - in the form of multilingual pioneers like Winter and Robert, and their associates.'
