Douglas Haig and the First World War / J.P. Harris. - Cambridge, New York : Cambridge University Press, 2009. - XI, 652 s. : il. ; 23 cm.
(Cambridge Military Histories / ed. Hew Strachan, Goeffrey Wawro)
Bibliografia s. 618-630, index s. 631-652
Paul Harris has not only written the definitive biography of Field Marshal Douglas Haig, but the most important book on the First World War to appear in over a decade. His judicious use of sources and impeccable research has placed Haig in the context of the terrible challenges that that terrible conflict raised. The resulting portrait presents his considerable strengths along with the fatal flaws that were to prove so disastrous in terms of the lives of British soldiers in the battles of 1916 and 1917. Above all Harris' biography underlines that it is individuals who make history, not obscure social trends.

Bibliografia przy rozdziałach.
In the wake of the Scottish vote on independence, questions of sovereignty, devolution, and local control have perhaps never been more salient. This book explores the evolution of the idea of national identity in modern Britain as it affected Wales. It ranges historically from the French Revolution and its aftershocks to the wide-ranging effects of World War I and on to present debates over decentralization and ties with Europe, while also offering close looks at key personalities, like Lloyd George, the first (and thus far only) Welsh prime minister. Drawing on both his extensive experience in politics and his decades of academic study, Kenneth O. Morgan has written what is likely to be the definitive work on this topic.

A new England? : peace and war, 1886-1918 / G. R. Searle. - Oxford : Clarendon Press ; New York : Oxford University Press, 2004. - XXII, 951 s., [16] s. tabl. ; 25 cm.
(The New Oxford History of England)
Bibliogr. s. 864-902. Indeks.
This absorbing narrative history brings into sharp and lively focus a period of immense energy, creativity, and turmoil. The book opens in 1886, as the Empire is poised to celebrate Victoria's golden jubilee, and ends in 1918 at the close of the 'war to end all wars', with England knowing that an era has conclusive ended. It vividly portrays every aspect of the nation's life - political, social and cultural - carrying the reader from the wretched city slums to the bustling docks and factories, from the grand portals of Westminster to blackpool's new holiday beach, from the world of the leisured aristocracy to the trenches of the Western Front and the violent politics of the militant suffrage movement.
