This serious, compact survey of the war s history stands out as the most well- informed, accessible work available. ("Los Angeles Times") What Strachan offers is history as only the professionals can do it, and rarely enough even then. (Adam Gopnik, "The New Yorker") Likely to be the most indispensable one-volume work on the subject since John Keegan s First World War. ("Publishers Weekly") A brilliant feat. (John Keegan) Quite simply the best short history of the war in print. (Dennis Showalter)
