Reviews

'The Cambridge History of the First World War not only deserves to find a place in every university and school, but also on the shelves of anyone with an interest in the war that was supposed to end all wars. Utterly absorbing, endlessly fascinating, absolutely essential.' History of War '... formidably comprehensive ...' The Bookseller '... an astonishing achievement. It is a comprehensive, insightful and challenging collection, beautifully produced.' Richard Grayson, Reviews in History (history.ac.uk/reviews) 'The single most important piece of collective scholarship to emerge from the centenary.' BBC History Magazine 'The global perspective on the war, represented in these volumes, adds further layers of complexity to our understanding of this foundational moment in modern history. The conjunction of early twentieth-century patterns of globalization and industrialized great power war was singular, distinguishing it from earlier European conflicts fought across the globe and the Second World War, which followed the collapse of globalization in the 1930s.' William Mulligan, European History Quarterly
