About

«[…] for the time, it must be remembered, was on the far side of the gulf of 1914-18, when people permitted themselves simple and sentimental reactions and society was believed to be advancing in moral progress.»

Barbara Tuchman in “How we entered World War I”, first published in New York Times Magazine (1967)
