Review:

"[Barbara W. Tuchman's] Pulitzer Prize-winning "The Guns of August "was an expert evocation of the first spasm of the 1914-1918 war. She brings the same narrative gifts and panoramic camera eye to her portrait of the antebellum world."--"Newsweek"
"A rare combination of impeccable scholarship and literary polish . . . It would be impossible to read "The Proud Tower "without pleasure and admiration."--"The New York Times"
"An exquisitely written and thoroughly engrossing work . . . The author's knowledge and skill are so impressive that they whet the appetite for more."--"Chicago Tribune"
"[Tuchman] tells her story with cool wit and warm understanding."--"Time"
