Tomasky's Friday Quiz: the eminent historians

This was a fun one, and right up my alley:  Friday quiz: the eminent historians.  I knew nine of them, had to guess on 2, 9, and 12, and missed 2 and 9.  I would have gotten 2 if I'd gone with my first thought.  So, ten out of twelve.

Several commenters seconded Tomasky's mention of The Great War and Modern Memory, and I agree.  Reading it was an enormously satisfying and enlightening experience.  I would add that it pairs wonderfully with Modris Ecksteins's Rites of Spring:  The Great War and the Birth of the Modern Age.
