How did the First World War transform the lives of ordinary people all over the world? In the latest episode of NIOD Rewind, Anne van Mourik interviews Maartje Abbenhuis and Ismee Tames about their new book Global War, Global Catastrophe: Neutrals, Belligerents and the Transformations of the First World War. Conventionally, the history of The First World War is predominantly one of Western belligerents and battlefields. Maartje and Ismee, however, turn this traditional history inside out and focus on the histories of those who are often marginalised in the narratives on the war. What did the war mean for people and societies in colonies and neutral states? How did this innovative idea for the book came about? And what is it that we can learn from the book for our present-day society?
