Hundra år efter det första världskrigets utbrott kan vi tydligt se hur händelseutvecklingen skulle leda till en tragedi. För människorna som levde och dog i kriget, eller såg det närma sig vid horisonten, var dock bilden inte alltid lika självklar.

Med sin bok Stridens skönhet och sorg har Peter Englund givit ett nyskapande bidrag till det första världskrigets historia. Genom att utgå från högst verkliga människoöden, i de flesta fall okända personer vars liv fallit i glömska, hittar han ett nytt sätt att skriva historia. Stridens skönhet och sorg 1914, som ges ut till hundraårsminnet av krigets utbrott, är första delen av fem i en kraftigt utökad utgåva. Det är en skildring av kriget som upplevelse och vardag, som löfte och lögn, som berusning och mardröm och som en allt nedbrytande, förändrande kraft.
