520    The French defeat by Germany of 1870-71 was profoundly 
       humiliating, sparking widespread soul-searching, intense 
       political conflict, and a fundamental reassessment of the 
       character of the nation. Based on extensive new archival 
       research, this book is the first wide-ranging analysisof 
       how memories of the Franco-Prussian War shaped French 
       political culture and identities in the period thereafter.
       It argues that these memories reawakened deeply-rooted 
       political divisions, distorting them through the prism of 
       the "terrible year." Examining the emergence of war 
       remembrance as a mass phenomenon for the first time in 
       Europe, it explores the cult of the dead, the construction
       of war memorials,"pilgrimages" to sites of remembrance, 
       art, and literature relating to the war. It sheds new 
       light on how groups and individuals constructed memories 
       not only to define and articulate their ideas, butalso to 
       situate themselves within new political concepts of the 
       nation
