In an often neglected subject area, “Kindheit und Schule im Ersten Weltkrieg“ examines the everyday life of Austrian children during the First World War. The book sketches out central features of the state’s schooling system, elaborating on how it was utilized in the war effort and inspecting limits and failures of these policies, especially amidst the exhaustion of the later war years.
