War, Revolution, and Nation-Making in Lithuania, 1914-1923

Tomas Balkelis

The Greater War

  • Explores how the Lithuanian state was created and shaped by the Great War and its aftermath
  • Approaches the Lithuanian conflict through the lens of real people, such as refugees, veterans, volunteers, peasant conscripts, POWs, and paramilitary fighters
  • Shows the impact the war had on the Lithuanian nation, not simply during the war, but for decades after the conflict subsided
  • Addresses a crucial formative period in the history of the Baltic region, using Lithuania as a lens through which to view the larger East European landscape
