".... woven by people, for people and of people... I am enchanted by her success in portraying the Great War not as 'diplomacy continued by other means' - the classical definition of war - but as the humour and heartbreak of vulnerable human beings. Since I happen to be a 'Brit' I react instantly to the amorous Duke of Connaught and the masterly Max Aitken. The boom of the guns never drowns the voices of the people." - Elizabeth Longford. "... a marvelous cast of characters ... takes history out of its neat categories and puts us into contact with what it must have felt like to be there..." - Patricia Smart, The Ottawa Citizen.
