Reviews

Costa Mesa Daily Pilot, 4/18/14 "The detail surrounding the many people involved in the slice of history building up to World War I is amazing...This book, with its accounts of the activities of many countries' politicians and the culture of Vienna at the time, explains what was going on so well that you almost feel as though you are there." Huffington Post, 5/31/14 "A book about war and madness...A fascinating and well-written account of the social origins and context of [World War I]." "While we're still marching through the centennial of the First World War, this is the perfect time to delve into the history, not just of the war itself but of the world that produced it. Frederic Morton's vivid portrait of antebellum Vienna begins with the intrigues and tensions roiling the Hapsburg capital in 1913 and ends with the breakdown of diplomacy among the Great Powers and the outbreak of war in the fall of 1914. Along the way, he introduces the reader to major historical figures of the twentieth century."?The Federalist, "Notable Books of 2016"
