WWI represented a tragic crossroads for the international Left. The pressing decision of the hour - whether to collaborate with or to resist imperialist war - was answered overwhelmingly with the former choice by almost every party of the Second International. However, Nation argues that those who chose the latter held the legacy for renewing socialism after the cataclysm of war. This is a crucial and defining chapter in the history of the socialist movement.
