The Forgotten Front

The Eastern Theater of World War I, 1914 - 1915

Although much has been written about the Western Front in World War I, little attention has been given to developments in the east, especially during the crucial period of 1914–1915. Not only did these events have a significant impact on the fighting and outcome of the battles in the west, but all the major combatants in the east ultimately suffered collapses of their political systems with enormous consequences for the future events.

Available for the first time in English, this seminal study features contributions from established and rising scholars from eight countries who argue German, central, and eastern European perspectives. Together, they illuminate diverse aspects of the Great War's Eastern Theater, including military strategy and combat, issues of national identity formation, perceptions of the enemy, and links to World War II. They also explore the experiences of POWs and the representation of the Eastern Front in museums, memorials, and the modern media.

The scholarship on the First World War is dominated by the trauma of the modern, technologized war in the west, causing the significant political events and battles on the Eastern Front to shift to the background. The Forgotten Front illuminates overlooked but vital aspects of the conflict, and will be an essential resource for students and scholars seeking to better understand the war and its legacy.

About the Authors

Colonel Gerhard P. Gross, Bundeswehr, is head of the Department of German Military History before 1945 at the Bundeswehr Center for Military History and Social Sciences in Potsdam. He is the author or coauthor of numerous books and articles, including The Myth and Reality of German Warfare: Operational Thinking from Moltke the Elder to Heusinger, and coeditor of The Schlieffen Plan: International Perspectives on the German Strategy for World War I.

Reviews

"This very solidly researched and documented study on a neglected area of World War I will be regarded as a key work of scholarship for some time, especially given its broad scope and multinational approach. The Eastern Front in World War I is just now beginning to receive serious scholarly attention from Anglo-American historians, and this volume will hopefully lead scholars to begin investigating other such overlooked topics."—Stephen G. Fritz, author of Ostkrieg: Hitler's War of Extermination in the East

"This pathbreaking collection of essays examining World War I's forgotten Eastern Front demonstrates the conflict's contentious legacy and its impact on World War II."—Scott A. Merriman, Troy University

"There is much to commend this volume. It takes on important controversies and considers the larger significance of the operations, experience, and memory."—H-Net Reviews
