Book Jacket: "One hundred years on, the First World War is being debated as never before. (...). This applies both to those countries where the 'Glorious Dead' of the 'Great War' have long been at the heart of national commemoration, and to those in which memories of the First World War have long been eclipsed by memories of the Second. (...). Experiences of struggle, hardship and loss, mass mobilization of resources, displacement and disruption of communities and exposure to propaganda - often from competing sources - all made their impact on imperial and national identities and loyalties. Some of these were reinforced; more were transformed. Europe was violently reforged - both physically, and as an idea. (...). To consider these and related questions, scholars from ten countries gathered at the Natolin Campus of the College of Europe on 7-8 April 2015 for a conference on 'Breaking Empires, Making Nations? The First World War and the Reforging of Europe'."--PUBLISHER'S NOTE.
