Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book 1917: Beyond the Western Front contains table of contents, list of contributors and introduction about the book. When it comes to 1916, popular general histories of the Great War tend to dwell largely upon Verdun and the Somme as the year?s defining conflicts. The Western Front, therefore, dominates the popular historiography though Jutland occasionally makes a token appearance. Popular accounts of 1917 are rather more balanced since it can hardly escape notice that the United States finally entered the conflict in April and Russia left it as a consequence of its two ?revolutions? in March and November.
