(p.1) Introduction
The Forgotten Front
Gerhard P. Gross, Janice W. Ancker
University Press of Kentucky

In the collective memory, the concept of the First World War is pervaded by the trauma of the modern technologized war on the western front, whereas the events and battles on the eastern front of 1914–1915, other than the battle of Tannenberg, have shifted into the background. Thus, the phrase “all quiet on the eastern front” offers a succinct description of the lack of scholarly research on the first two years of the war on the German eastern front. This volume aims to correct that deficiency, presenting essays by professional historians from eight countries discussing the eastern theater of war in terms of operations, mindset, and cultural-historical issues.

Keywords:   Forty-Sixth International Conference for Military History, First World War, eastern front, 1914–1915, Tannenberg battle
