Product description

Review

"Military Review" "Stone's book is a good overview of the war and worth reading.""H-Net Reviews""The narrative has a rich sense of immediacy, accentuated with intimate details, as if Stone knew each figure personally.... Throw in a handful of references to poems, films, and novels both contemporary and modern, as Stone does, add dashes of jaunty, scornful judgments, and the result is indeed a literary tour de force. The phrase 'cannot put it down' does indeed come to mind."

Max Egremont, Literary Review

What makes Norman Stone's book so successful is... its opinionated freshness and the unusual, sharp facts that fly about like shrapnel...[and] the way he tells it, with wit and unfamiliar anecdote, all the way to the wretched end as the peacemakers assembled in Paris
