The Impact of the First World War on Strategy Politique étrangère, Vol. 79, No. 1, Spring 2014
The First World War helped redefine the notion of strategy, giving it a political dimension that it previously lacked.
New institutions were created to allow civilians and members of the military a means to discuss major strategic directions. Beyond strategy, the “all-out war” of 1914-1918 transformed the very idea of war. We need to preserve the memory of this conflict; its dissuasive power could prevent such extremism from arising again.
