5.0 out of 5 stars So readable and reasonable!, 27 Jan. 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Great War: 1914-1918 (Kindle Edition)
Rarely s a factual book so detailed yet easy to read and understand. It comprehensively covers all the areas where fighting took place and explains what happened and why. Some leaders and parts of campaigns are are deemed to have been ill-advised or poorly led but generally this is the well explained alternative to the over-emotional 'lions led by donkeys' rubbish which completely overlooks the problems involved in mass mechanised warfare. Brilliantly selected contemporary reports from those who were there bring the war down to a personal level, so this never feels like an academic 'tome'. If you only read one WW1 book make it this one; if you have read all the others read this one. I hope it is compulsory reading for anyone involved in making programmes for this years anniversary.
