2.0 out of 5 stars Hard to swallow, 5 Jan 2011
This review is from: First World War (Paperback)
After considerable effort, I managed to go through the whole book. Perhaps the most annoying obstacle during the reading is the poems that Mr Hilbert stubbornly inserts everywhere. I was stubborn myself and read them, but got fed up with so much poetry. The poems were written by the soldiers and people who participated in the events described. I think it was Keegan's First World War book which I read before this one and found much more entertaining. Martin Gilbert is much better in his book "Israel: a history".
