Chto delat'?: World War I in Russian Historiography after Communism
Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
This article investigates the lack of Russian-language monographs about the Russian participation in the First World War. Discussing a number of recent and older works that have been published, the article suggests that the surprising lack of Russian interest has much to do with the continued unease felt in Russia about the Great War. This does not fit into the heroic image Russians (and particularly the current government) prefer to cherish about their past. The article in addition supplies the reader with a fairly comprehensive overview of recent English-language as well as Soviet, émigré, and post-Soviet Russian-language works on Russia in the Great War.
