In the "Great Donkeys" thread Adam has alluded to the fact that WW1 history is somewhat skewed by people such as the war poets who compare the war to a slaughter and yet WW2 is not seen in the same light even though there was as many casualties and on a much bigger scale, both geographically and statistically. so what do you think? Is the study of the great war clouded by perceptions and myth? Did the Anti-war lobby gain the upper hand in terms of its legacy? And how do you think that time has judged it against WW2?
