3.0 out of 5 stars Facts and figures, 24 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Great War, 1914-18 (Wordsworth Military Library) (Paperback)
This book has to cover the subject of WW I within the scope of 184 pages. Considering the fact that most books that have been written on isolated parts of this conflict already habitually use up more than twice this number of pages, the reader should not be surprised to get only a brief overview of the most relevant facts and figures of the war. Names of (some) politicians and generals do of course crop up through the book, but without more background than a brief mention that they were cautious, steadfast or fiery by nature.

For a book that has to cover so much information is so little space, it isn't at all badly written. But do not expect any real background, insight or telling anecdote.
