The political and cultural landscape of Europe was irrevocably changed
between the world wars. Wide swathes of Europe were affected by a crisis of
modernisation, the Great Slump, a rejection of democracy and a failure on
international systems. The results were an inevitable slide towards a
catastrophic conflict in Europe just a generation after the ‘war to end all wars’.
