Mass population displacement affected millions of Europe's civilians across the different theatres of war in 1914-18.
At the end of the war, a senior Red Cross official wrote 'there were refugees everywhere.
It was as if the entire world had to move or was waiting to move'.
Europe on the move: refugees in the era of the Great War, 1912-23 is the first attempt to understand their experiences as a whole and to establish the political, social and cultural significance and ramifications of the wartime refugee crisis.
Drawing on original research by leading specialists from more than a dozen countries, it will become the definitive work on the subject and will appeal to anyone who wishes to understand how governments and public opinion responded to refugees a century ago. -- .
