Detailed, Clear and Concise....I personally love books like this as the military thought going into campaigns to me is interesting.
Both French and German commanders are discussed as well as the processes they followed to either achieve their goals or fall short of them.
Great steady pace not too slow or too fast.
The battle for Stonne was covered well.
Highly praise this book and encourage others to listen to it.
outstanding story just taking a different perspective on the end of the war and how it was dealt with on different levels.
loved it!! very interesting and well worth the time. I highly recommend this to anyone.
If you know the battle of SOMME then this is a nice additional reference to have.
The narration I thought excellent and I have read this book before so it was a pleasure
Can't think of any
I was really surprised at his narration he did a excellent
No on either scale it was a good listen
Yes, narrator does a great job keeps you interested with what he is reading. Max Hastings mixes well the personal and historical prospectives to make a more well rounded story.
Nothing stands out the book itself was great.
Max does a great job covering the BEF in the first year. Don't get me wrong he does a great job covering it all but the BEF comes through clearly to forefront with me.
Very worth it.
Everything, its a great account from the other side.
The detail of his experience you get the feeling of being there with the great description.
The description of the final offensive of 1918
Never read or heard a WW1 account like this. Outstanding account and highly recommend
Its very thorough and does justice to the battle and those that fought it.
No but I have to admit that by reading the footnotes breaks the rhythm of the story but it was good when French words were read the footnote gave it the explanation of what they were saying so for me it goes both ways.
To someone who loves gaining an overall prospective and fan of Radio news from that period this was a joy to listen to.
Its a full picture of the practice of appeasement and the damage it did to all nations of Europe save Germany.
Soviet centered book with glances on Hitler.
Interesting views on Stalin and the Soviet Union, Author concentrates on debunking Soviet and Stalinist clams of victory and glory during the Second World War. Also covers before and after the war.
Overall I did enjoy it this book as it covers things that happened on the other side of the Eastern Front.
