The Year of Troubles
The soldiers of all belligerent countries become rebellious and mutinies break out.
On the home front, the restlessness and discontent of undernourished civilians
is reflected in countless strikes. On the other hand, the attitude of the political,
social-economic and military leaders hardens, as they are determined not to give
up until the ambitious objectives for which they have gone to war are realized . . .
