Review:

Tuchman has a gift of recreating a period and a mood by an inspired selection of detail and sheer narrative sweep. A volcano of a book (Evening Standard)

Impeccable scholarship and literary polish. Impossible to read without pleasure and admiration (New York Times)

Tuchman tells her story with cool wit and warm understanding (Time)

Her other works include Bible and Sword, The Proud Tower, Stilwell and the American Experience in China (for which Tuchman was awarded a second Pulitzer Prize), Notes from China, A Distant Mirror, Practicing History, The March of Folly, and The First Salute.
