Reviews

  • This is a powerful and moving book by a rising military historian. Lloyd's depiction of the great battles of July-November provides compelling evidence of the scale of the Allies' victories and the bitter reality of German defeat

    Gary Sheffield (Professor of War Studies)
  • Lloyd enters the upper tier of Great War historians with this admirable account of the war's final campaign

    Publishers Weekly
  • Writing about the last 100 days of the war on the Western Front, Lloyd asks whether the Allies had learnt anything from the previous years of conflict and whether the Germans were really defeated in 1918

    Joanna Bourke, The Telegraph
  • Lloyd's brisk and thoroughly engrossing book leaves no doubt that the Germans were beaten fair and square where it really mattered - on the battlefield

    Dominic Sandbrook, The Evening Standard
  • There is a grim fascination to the endgame, as the hopes still nursed by the Germans were finally extinguished and the Allies won a victory that in seemed inevitable in retrospect

    Metro
  • Gives the reader an insight into the raw emotions of the period and lends immediacy to the more sober narrative

    The Oxford Times
  • Compelling, very readable

    Books Monthly
  • As Nick Lloyd's account of the great Allied counter-offensives of summer 1918 convincingly shows, the Allies had learned (if painfully slowly) how to win battles . . . the German army was absolutely, totally defeated in the field

    John Lewis-Stempel, The Express
  • Hundred Days is a bracing re-dramatization of the horrors that were most fresh in the minds of all concerned when those days were over

    Steve Donoghue, Open Letters Monthly
  • Very well-researched and well-written. Reminds us just how important this crushing endgame was
