    History for busy people. Listen to a concise history of World War One in just one hour. World War One brought with it the world’s first experience of Total War, involving all of the world’s great powers, polarized between the Triple Entente, led by Britain, France and Russia, and the Central Powers, dominated by Germany, Italy and Austria-Hungary. Around nine million men lost their lives in a conflict that introduced the horrors of trench warfare, machine guns, and toxic gas attacks.

    Would you listen to World War One: History in an Hour again? Why?

    I would. As a teacher of history, this is a great refresher AND I learned something new about the topic. It is logically put together and easy to listen to.


    What other book might you compare World War One: History in an Hour to and why?

    Both "Stalin" and "The Russian Revolution" by this author were really good.

    Young Nicholas Hook is dogged by a curse, haunted by what he has failed to do and banished for what he has done. A wanted man in England, he is driven to fight as a mercenary archer in France, where he finds two things he can love: his instincts as a fighting man, and a girl in trouble. Together they survive the notorious massacre at Soissons, an event that shocks all Christendom. With no options left, Hook heads home to England, where his capture means certain death.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is great historical fiction. It has a good pace and a story line that kept me wanting more. I wish there were more books like this. It was a great (and less dense) follow-up for me after listening to George R. R. Martin's "Clash of Kings"


    Have you listened to any of Charles Keating’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Great voice! Changes it enough without it becoming distracting or cloying.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The battle scene at the end of the novel is worth it alone.
