Review

Insightful, drawn from numerous sources woven together into anarrativethat is easy to follow even if one knows little about this theater of the war...The centennial of World WarI is under way, andauthors aroundthe globe are writing many new books about the way. This book certainly ranks among the best of them. Military Heritage Painstaking research and firsthand accounts propel the author's narrative of events that took place during the first year of the war a century ago. Buttar's splendid hardcover book puts an exclamation point on the reality that their collision in combat resulted in the downfalls of all three empires. Toy Soldier & Model Figure Based in archival research, this book will appeal to readers interested in World War I and especially the first months of battles on the Eastern Front. Library Journal ...a timely retelling of the early weeks of the war on the Eastern Front. WWI Historical Association, www.ww1ha.org (October 6, 2014)"
