What I’m Reading: The Anatomy of Fascism – 15 in a series – “…Europeans that their civilization itself, with its promise of peace and progress, had failed.“

“When, in August 1914, a petty Balkan conflict erupted out of control into a total war among the European Great Powers, and when those powers managed to sustain the slaughter of an entire generation of young men over four years, it seemed to many Europeans that their civilization itself, with its promise of peace and progress, had failed.“

From The Anatomy of Fascism by Robert O. Paxton
