My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This isn’t exactly a review, but I want to write something in hopes that others will give this book a read as well.
You don’t need to be a history buff to enjoy this book. With all honestly, this is the first serious history book I’ve ever picked up, and I only did so because of a recommendation. But to say this book fascinated me is an understatement.
Not only did this book take me through all I thought I’d ever want know about WWI, but it has in fact driven me to learn more about the great historical events that have shaped the world. This book gave me a great understanding of the cogs that shape and run the modern world, and gave me some much needed historical perspective on regions that still create turmoil today (Eastern Europe, Middle East).
This book is an invaluable piece of education.
