Gary Sheffield contends that the popular view that the First World War was, in the words of historian John Keegan, 'tragic and unnecessary', is wrong. It is his strongly argued belief that such a conclusion does not represent the cutting edge of research into the most controversial conflict in British history. Based on twenty years of research, as well as reflecting the interpretations of the revisionist school of historians based around the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, the Imperial War Museum and the British Commission for Military History, this book challenges the fundamental assumptions underpinning the 'traditional' belief that the First World War was a wholly futile conflict.
