With so many 100 anniversary First World War books rehashing well known stuff, it is very refreshing to come across a completely new aspect. Prof Roberts provides a really lucid account of the financial crash set off by the outbreak of war and how it was handled by the authorities and main players. There are many uncanny parallels with the recent credit crunch; but it is also very revealing of the society of the time.

How many people knew there was a global crash in 1914? Fascinating insight into the period around the beginning of WW1, and will be different from a lot of books published this year to mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of war. A great addition to the bookshelves!
