Customer Review

on 7 September 2007
The victors of World War I had the best intentions to succeed but they left Europe in a bigger mess than before. That's the message I took home from reading Margaret MacMillan's book on the 1919 Paris Peace Conference.

MacMillan does a fine job in covering all the aspects of the Paris conference, and although she naturally spends a lot of time on Britain, France and the US, she does mention all the other parties involved and the politics behind and between all of them. She then covers virtually every single nation, what they came to Paris for - territory-wise - and what deal they went home with. The effects of some of these `settlements' we still have to content with today, the recent civil war in Yugoslavia and the mess in the Middle East among them.

The other aspect I liked about the book is the clear and easy style in which it is written. This book is just excellent.
