With Our Backs to the Wall
Victory and Defeat in 1918Book - 2011
Why did World War I end with a whimper-an arrangement between two weary opponents to suspend hostilities? Why did the Allies reject the option of advancing into Germany and taking Berlin? Most histories of the Great War focus on the avoidability of its beginning. This book focuses on Germanyâe(tm)s inconclusive defeat and its ominous ramifications.
