'Home by Christmas!' was the confident cry of the young men who marched to the frontlines in 1914. From London, Paris and Berlin they went in their millions, and in their millions they died. Marc Ferro's most famous work, The Great War looks at the realities faced by those men and their families at home. By doing so, Ferro has presented us with one of the most significant reappraisals of the Great War ever to be written.
