Reflections on the First World War

"War should be so engaged in that nothing but peace should appear to be aimed at." Reflections on the First World War in light of Cicero's dictum.

Allan Mallinson reflects upon Marshal Foch's prescient statement in 1919 that the Treaty of Versailles was “not a peace but a twenty-year armistice” despite the complete defeat of the Quadruple Alliance in 1918.

Allan Mallinson is a former soldier and author of the Matthew Hervey novels as well as the best-selling The Making of the British Army (2009), the award-winning 1914: Fight the Good Fight - Britain, the Army and the Coming of the First World War (2013) and Too Important for the Generals: How Britain Nearly Lost the First World War (2016). In 2014, he was commissioned to write a monthly commentary for The Times, which provided the basis of Fight to the Finish: The First World War, Month by Month (2018).
