Masterful and coherent analysis, 4 Feb. 2013
This is a really well put together account account. Having just fiished it I re-read the first and last chapters again, as these can stand alone. The way the that alternatives to the actual ending could have occured, and the ineveitability of the Second World War as a consequence of the ending of the first makes this more than just a standard account.
I would encourage anybody to read it not only if they are interested in the period, but also if they are interested in how to write history.
