Customer Review

on 14 July 2014
This is written in Allan Mallinson's already unmistakable non-fiction style; just that touch lighter and readable, but no less informative than the heavier tomes. He inserts some really thought provoking "what ifs" and "if onlys" and there is some fascinating stuff in the wealth of footnotes, many of which, to my mind, could have been included in the main text. In short it is a cracking read and I would rate it alongside Macmillans' "The War that ended Peace", Hastings' "Catastrophe", and maybe even Clarke's "Sleepwalkers". Each approaches the subject from a different angle and all get 5 stars from me. I have read "Sleepwalkers" twice and just started "Fight the Good Fight" again because they seem to complement each other. After hours of enjoyable reading however, I am still not quite sure how The Great War started!
