Peter Englund. The Beauty and the Sorrow: An Intimate History of the First World War
Битката: красота и печал: Първата световна война в 212 кратки глави
Category: World War ILanguage: Bugarian


     There are many books on the First World War, but award-winning and bestselling historian Peter Englund takes a daring and stunning new approach. Describing the experiences of twenty ordinary people from around the world, he explores the everyday aspects of war: not only the tragedy and horror, but also the absurdity, monotony and even beauty. Following soldiers and sailors, nurses and government workers, from Britain, Russia, Germany, Australia and South America  and in theatres of war often neglected by major histories on the period  Englund reconstructs their feelings, impressions, experiences and moods. This is a piece of anti-history: it brings this epoch-making event back to its smallest component, the individual.
