Volume 1: The Advent to the World War.
During and in the aftermath of World War I, Karl Helfferich presents a riveting account in his three-volume series, “The Great War I." Originally published in 1919 and hailing from Berlin, Germany, this monumental work delves into the intricacies of a world torn apart by conflict.
Helfferich, a keen observer and commentator, takes us on a journey through the corridors of power, the battlefields soaked in blood, and the societal shifts that defined an era.
The series is a treasure trove of military strategies, political manoeuvres, and human stories. From the Supreme War Council of the Entente to the Bolshevik revolution in Russia, Helfferich leaves no stone unturned. He explores the role of propaganda, the Military Industrial Complex, and the geopolitical chessboard that set the stage for modern conflicts.
As you navigate through the volumes, you'll encounter a world not so different from today's—governments creating crises to offer solutions, the rise of corporate influence in policy-making, and the ever-present spectre of war. This series is not just a historical account; it's a mirror reflecting our current world, urging us to learn from the past to navigate the future.
In a time when the Club of Rome creates, and then warns us of impending global crises and the World Economic Forum shapes international policies, "The Great War series" serves as a timeless reminder of the complexities and consequences of global politics and warfare.
