A remarkable book... An amazingly audacious and completely innovative way of writing history ... immediate and gripping -- William Boyd
An ambitious, original, seductive and important work -- Robert Gildea
Brings this extraordinary time to life with great vividness by evoking key moments from the daily lives of a dazzling variety of people -- Adam Hochschild
Emmerson skilfully tells the story of this lingering end to the Great War and Europe's subsequent and dramatic transformation * History of War *
