Released this week, The silent morning
The first book to study the cultural impact of the Armistice of 11 November 1918.

This title, by Trudi Tate and Kate Kennedy, contains 14 new essays from scholars working in literature, music, art history and military history. The Armistice brought hopes for a better future, as well as sadness, disappointment and rage. Many people in all the combatant nations asked hard questions about the purpose of the war. These questions are explored in complex and nuanced ways in the literature, music and art of the period.

The authors revisit the silence of the Armistice, and ask how its effect was to echo into the following decades. The essays are genuinely interdisciplinary and are written in a clear, accessible style.
