Product description


Gripping...I would highly recommend this book, not only for the honest appraisal of all the main characters and countries involved, but because it gives a voice to those who paid the ultimate price, often for no purpose whatsoever (Morning Star)

Praise for The Somme:

'The most comprehensive and insightful account of the vast tragedy of the Somme that I have read


Praise for Gallipoli

'Superb... a serious and important work on Gallipoli. It is researched in fine detail and written in Peter Hart's increasingly excellent style

(Press Association)

A valuable, timely and highly readable overview of the Great War on all major fronts (Professor Peter Simkins)

Thought provoking, erudite, yet eminently readable and entertaining: Peter Hart is a historian and author at the peak of his powers. (Richard Van Emden)

Immensely readable...Hart excels not only at making it intelligible but also at turning it into a gripping narrative, which includes extensive and moving quotations from soldiers and sailors who bore the consequences of their commanders' decisions and faced the realities of combat...Hart's book will contribute to a sea change in our understanding of the war during the years of the centenary. (John Horne Irish Times)

Book Description

A masterful history of the First World War, covering all areas and explaining the technology and tactics that determined its course
