The essay focuses on the consequences of the First World War, specifically on those that can be traced to the traumatic experience of trench warfare on the Western Front. Under consideraion is the industrialization of warfare and the impact of the technological violence unleashed, as well as the manner in which soldiers responded to these developments. In this context, what emerges as crucial is the attempt to understand the consciences and beliefs that grew out o this experience, which were often related to the feelings of isolation, alientation and fear, but also of solidarity and community, that often overcame soldiers. The relation between feelings, consciences and the new techniques of warfare, which crystallized in the "experience of the trenches" (Fronterlebnis), is discussed in the first chapters. An attempt to comprehend the political, cultural, and social implications of these developments in interwar Europe follows, particularly with reference to Germany. The return of the "front generqation" and the rise of Nazism colours this final part. Throughout the essay, particular attention is paid to the expereince of trench warfare, not least because of the insights gleaned from close reading
