Why did the ‘war to end all wars’ initiate a century of conflict? This searching re-examination shows how the wars of the 20th century originated in unsuccessful peace agreements: how French hostility to the 1871 Treaty of Frankfurt paved the way for the First World War; how German resentment of the Treaty of Versailles brought Hitler to power; and how the post-1945 conflicts in Korea, Vietnam and the Middle East arose from peace treaties that failed to last.
