Product description

Review

Succeeds brilliantly ... His scholarship is remarkable, his prose light and lovely, his judgements fair (Paul Kennedy Sunday Times)

An ambitious and accomplished account, abreast of modern scholarship, has been overdue, and EUROPE'S TRAGEDY supplies it all admirably (Blair Worden Literary Review)

Magisterial ... a wise, wide-seeking account, tenaciously researched (Lauro Martines The Times Literary Supplement)

A history of prodicious erudition ... a definitive account has been needed, and now Peter Wilson has provided it (Jeffrey Collins Wall Street Journal)

A wonderfully comprehensive and detailed account (Tim Blanning Sunday Telegraph)

From the Publisher

Review from Paul Kennedy, Sunday Times:

`Peter Wilson is a brave man to undertake a new general survey of one of the most long-lasting, multi-dimensional and controversial wars of all time. It is a joy to report that, at least in this reviewer's opinion, Europe's Tragedy succeeds brilliantly ... His scholarship seems to me remarkable, his prose light and lovely, his judgments fair'
