Summary

A searing and highly original analysis of the First World War and its anguished aftermath

In the depths of the Great War, with millions dead and no imaginable end to the conflict, societies around the world began to buckle. The heart of the financial system
shifted from London to New York. The infinite demands for men and matériel reached into countries far from the front. The strain of the war ravaged all economic
and political assumptions, bringing unheard-of changes in the social and industrial
order.

A century after the outbreak of fighting, Adam Tooze revisits this seismic moment in history, challenging the existing narrative of the war, its peace, and its aftereffects. From the day the United States enters the war in 1917 to the precipice of global financial ruin, Tooze delineates the world remade by American economic and military power.
Tracing the ways in which countries came to terms with America’s centrality—including the slide into fascism—The Deluge is a chilling work of great originality
that will fundamentally change how we view the legacy of World War I.
