Imperial Germany and the Great War, 1914-1918 by Roger Chickering( Book )

41 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and German and held by 1,290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unlike other existing surveys, this book explores the comprehensive impact of the First World War on Imperial Germany by offering a rich portrait of life on the home front: the pervasive effects of 'total war' on wealthy and poor, men and women, young and old, farmers and city-dwellers, Protestants, Catholics, and Jews. Now appearing in a second edition, this accessible book reflects important new scholarship in the field and boasts an expanded and revised bibliography. It is essential reading for all students of German and European history, war and society
A world at total war : global conflict and the politics of destruction, 1937-1945 by Roger Chickering( )

29 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 1,248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume presents the results of a fifth and final conference on the history of total war. It is devoted to the Second World War, which many scholars regard as the paradigmatic instance of total war. In considering the validity of this proposition, the authors address a broad range of analytical problems that this vast conflict posed in its European and Asian theaters. They analyze modes of combat, war aims, the mobilization of economies and societies, occupation regimes, the vulnerability of noncombatants, and the legal and moral issues raised by the industrialized warfare of the mid-twentieth century. The volume will be of interest to all students of war and society in the modern era."--Jacket
We men who feel most German : a cultural study of the Pan-German League, 1886-1914 by Roger Chickering( Book )

14 editions published between 1984 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Pan-German League was the most radical of all the patriotic societies in Imperial Germany, the most ferocious voice of German nationalism. Its program clearly anticipated that of the Nazis in calling for German expansion on the European continent and overseas, in branding Jews as members of an inferior yet dangerous race, and in advocating a German national community in which internal antagonisms of whatever character would dissolve. This study presents the first systematic analysis of the cultural sources of this organization's appeal and influence in Imperial Germany. It focuses on the symbolic dimensions of the Pan-German League's literature and activities, in an attempt to explain the remarkable attraction of the League's aggressive ideology to certain select social groups. The study examines, in addition, the relationship between the League and other patriotic societies in Imperial Germany; and it analyzes the processes by which the organization succeeded, on the eve of the First World War, in mobilizing a broad 'national opposition' to the German government. The study draws on concepts from psychology and anthropology, and its documentary foundation includes archival material in both East and West Germany"--Jacket
Great War, total war : combat and mobilization on the Western Front, 1914-1918( Book )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

World War I was the first large-scale industrialized military conflict in world history, and it gave birth to the concept of total war. The essays in this volume analyze the experience of the war in light of this concept's implications, in particular the systematic erosion of distinctions between the military and civilan spheres
The Great War and urban life in Germany : Freiburg, 1914-1918 by Roger Chickering( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and German and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anticipating total war : the German and American experiences, 1871-1914 by Manfred F Boemeke( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in Anticipating Total War: The German and American Experiences, 1871-1914 explore the discourse on war in Germany and the United States between 1871 and 1914 - in the era bounded by the midcentury wars in Europe and North America and World War I. The concept of "total war," which was prefigured in aspects of the earlier conflicts and realized in 1914, provides the analytical focus. The essays reveal vigorous discussions of warfare in several forums - among soldiers, statesmen, women's groups, and educators - on both sides of the Atlantic. Predictions of long, cataclysmic wars were not uncommon in these discussions, while the involvement of German and American soldiers in colonial warfare suggested that future combat would not spare civilians. Despite these "anticipations of total war," virtually no one foresaw the practical implications in planning for war in the early twentieth century."--Jacket
Imperial Germany : a historiographical companion( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

War in an age of revolution, 1775-1815( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume investigates a critical moment in the history of warfare. It assembles historians of the early modern and modern eras to speak to one another across the great historiographical divide that has traditionally separated them. The central questions in the volume have to do with the historical place of revolutionary warfare on both sides of the Atlantic--the degree to which they extended practices common in the eighteenth century or introduced fundamentally new forms of warfare. Among the topics covered in the volume are the global dimensions of warfare, logistics, universal military service and the mobilization of noncombatants, occupation, and the impact of war on civilian life in both Europe and North America"--Provided by publisher

The Cambridge history of war( )

24 editions published in 2012 in English and Efik and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... Offers a definitive new account of war in the most destructive period in human history. Opening with the massive conflicts that erupted in the mid-nineteenth century in the United States, Asia, and Europe, leading historians trace the global evolution of warfare through 'the age of mass, ' 'the age of machine, ' and 'the age of management.' They explore how industrialization and nationalism fostered vast armies whilst the emergence of mobile warfare and improved communications systems made possible the 'total warfare' of the two world wars. With military conflict regionalized after 1945, they show how guerrilla and asymmetrical warfare highlighted the limits of the machine and mass as well as the importance of the media in winning 'hearts and minds.' This is a comprehensive guide to every facet of modern war from strategy and operations to its social, cultural, technological, and political contexts and legacies"--Jacket, p. [4]

Endangered cities : military power and urban societies in the era of the world wars( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eleven essays explore the European urban experience of war in the 20th century. Presented by Funck (Philipps-U. in Marburg, Germany) and Chickering (history, Georgetown U., US) the contributions explore the ways urban administrators and planners responded to urban vulnerability from the air, touching upon such topics as attempts to camouflage cities to make them "illegible" to bombers and the transformation of cities through wholesale evacuation of populations. They also examine daily urban experiences of siege and occupation, the enactment of urban ritual and theatre in wartime, and the reconstruction of cities after the destruction of war
