Reviews

Jeffery gives the war a human face by focusing on the experience of individuals ... An absorbing and multi-layered analysis, one of the most impressive books on the First World War to have appeared in the centenary period * Times Literary Supplement * Jeffery tells this history with a breadth and depth that has come to characterize his work * BBC History Magazine * `It is no small achievement to fit so much diverse material and argument into a single fast-paced volume ... Enthralling * Prospect * Making sense of time and space at the midpoint of the First World War is the challenge to which Keith Jeffery rises triumphantly in this sparkling history ... Combining sharp analysis with superb storytelling and using a gallery of extraordinary characters, he discusses 1916 in 12 scenes ... A global and truly illuminating perspective * Irish Times * A remarkable panorama ... The writing is excellent * Wall Street Journal * His complete knowledge of the war's history is impressive and astonishing, and his revelations of research conducted for this volume are highly impressive * Dallas Morning Star * A creative and remarkable approach to history; his passion for unearthing previously overshadowed events shines * Library Journal * Commendable * Times Educational Supplement * Richly detailed, and always fascinating ... A brilliant compendium of everything-you-didn't-know-about World War I, which, for many readers, will be a great deal * Kirkus *
