Reviews

  • The most challenging and provocative analysis of the First World War to date

    Ian Kershaw
  • Must take a permanent place at the top of the War's historiography. It is one of the very few books whose own scale matches that of the events it describes

    Alan Clark, Daily Telegraph
  • Brilliant and stimulating ... radical, readable and convincing

    The Times
  • Possibly the most important book to appear in years both on the origins of the First World War ... Ferguson can confidently claim to have inherited A. J. P. Taylor's mantle

    Paul Kennedy, New York Review of Books
  • At one massive stroke, Niall Ferguson has transformed the intellectual landscape

    Economist
