Reviews

  • Magisterial in its scope, beautifully written and literally unputdownable... I cannot recommend Keegan's book too highly.

    Julian Critchley, Scotsman
  • Nobody describes a battle as Keegan does, vividly relating the unfolding events to the contours of the field of combat... This book is a kind of war memorial. As first-hand memory fades, The First World War honours the dead as only true history can.

    Niall Ferguson, Sunday Times
  • John Keegan's The First World War can take its place alongside the other defining works he has written... The best and most approachable introduction to the war.

    David Horspool, Guardian
  • A splendidly readable account of the war on all fronts, from its political and cultural origins to its bloody conclusion... Compelling.

    Max Wilkinson, Financial Times
  • Excellent... The First World War tells the story with passion, sanity and the military historian's eye for overall strategy.

    Andrew Roberts, Mail on Sunday
