• Peter Wilson is a brave man to undertake a new general survey of one of the most long-lasting, multi-dimensional and controversial wars of all time. It is a joy to report that, at least in this reviewer's opinion, Europe's Tragedy succeeds brilliantly ... His scholarship seems to me remarkable, his prose light and lovely, his judgments fair

    Paul Kennedy, Sunday Times
  • An ambitious and accomplished account, abreast of modern scholarship, has been overdue, and EUROPE'S TRAGEDY supplies it all admirably

    Blair Worden, Literary Review
  • A wonderfully comprehensive and detailed account

    Tim Blanning, Daily Telegraph
  • Magisterial ... a wise, wide-seeking account, tenaciously researched

    Lauro Martines, The Times Literary Supplement
  • A history of prodicious erudition ... a definitive account has been needed, and now Peter Wilson has provided it

    Jeffrey Collins, Wall Street Journal
