"The essays in this collection, the fourth in a series on the problem of total war, examine the interwar period.

A world at total war : global conflict and the politics of destruction, 1937-1945 by Roger Chickering( )

23 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 1,221 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

Great War, total war : combat and mobilization on the Western Front, 1914-1918( Book )

19 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 483 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
Anticipating total war : the German and American experiences, 1871-1914 by Manfred F Boemeke( Book )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 414 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
Bismarck, Europe, and Africa : the Berlin Africa Conference 1884-1885 and the onset of partition( Book )

11 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

8 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 340 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

Vor dem Sprung ins Dunkle Die militärische Debatte über den Krieg der Zukunft 1880-1914( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in German and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In diesem Band verfolgen namhafte Historiker zum ersten Mal systematisch die Debatte über den Krieg der Zukunft anhand der Militärzeitschriften des Deutschen Reichs, Frankreichs und Grossbritanniens zwischen 1880 und 1914. Schon lange vor 1914 diskutierten Fachleute über den Charakter eines zukünftigen grossen Kriegs. Ihre Voraussagen waren oft falsch, manchmal hingegen erstaunlich weitsichtig, generell aber von Unsicherheit geprägt. Ein wichtiges Medium dieser Debatte waren die militärischen Fachzeitschriften, die die Forschung bislang nur selektiv ausgewertet hat. Der vorliegende Band holt das nun mit systematischen Analysen von Militärzeitschriften des Deutschen Reichs, Frankreichs und Grossbritanniens nach. Dabei zeigt sich genauer als je zuvor, mit welchen Vorstellungen die Militärs der genannten Länder im August 1914 in den Krieg zogen und dabei eine Katastrophe anrichteten."--Cover
