Good histroy book

by purlandknit on Jun 21, 2012

The book is a great histroy book however the author gets bogged down with too mush information of every general in the book. A shorter version of their bios would be better. The book is a long and tedious read but the information is good.

The 1st month of WW 1

by Peder on Apr 1, 2010

The mistakes and the arrogance of allies and Germans alike are portrayed graphically in Ms Tuchman's review of the 1st month of Word War 1, the war that was to last 40 days. It is easy to understand why WW 1 and 2 are called one war with a 20 year hiatus between them. The issues were very much the same. A riveting read.
