Example text

Lii Author’s Note German operational code names are sometimes used for main entry heads, but cross-referenced to an English-language term so that readers will have no difficulty finding the entry. Campaign terminology in Soviet and Russian histories is often lengthy and awkward in English translation, as in Rzhev-Viazma strategic operation. Nevertheless, it is used in this encyclopedia as delineating an important historiographical tradition. I am fully aware that, on occasion, that tradition was deliberately misleading to serve postwar Stalinist interests.

Better known is that dread of more war and satisfaction with the peace on the winning side was opposed by a deep desire for revenge and a revolutionary overthrow of the Great War’s outcome by many of those in the losing camp. Dissatisfaction in support of violence was even felt by populations in some countries, most notably Italy and Japan, which numbered among the victors of 1918. Historians point to many other connections between the world wars: German and other national dissatisfaction with the Versailles system and international order; competitive, militant nationalisms among a host of injured or newly minted countries that nursed real and imagined grievances across several generations; confl icting imperial ideologies and interests; unresolved territorial issues; the growing capacity for total mobilization of whole societies and economies for industrialized war; emergence of new military technologies accompanied by aggressive, offensive fighting doctrines; and ever more clearly as time recedes, the path to genocide that is traceable from the Ottoman slaughter of Armenians in 1915 to the Shoah, the mass murder of European Jews, and to multiple other ethnic holocausts and horrors of the early 1940s.
