As the First World War ends, survivors realize that the world they knew had disappeared, buried in the ruins. The victors conceive a precarious peace treaty which they impose on the vanquished. In Europe, Africa, and Asia new nations are forged, often through strife and conflict. In a brief time hatred, fear, and resentment bubble up from the depths of traumatized societies, sowing chaos in the new world order in the form of revolutions, crises, waves of migration, and civil wars, which are fertile ground for totalitarianism. People try to shake off memories of war to the frantic beat of the Charleston dance, blind to the approach of a new apocalypse.
