The beginning of the 19th century marked the peak of Western imperial power. After subjugating "inferior" peoples in distant lands, the European states turned inward in an unparalleled orgy of self-destruction that began in 1914 and did not end until1945. "The Great War" revolutionizes our understanding of the First World War by placing it squarely in the context of Western imperialism.
