    The First World War is one of history’s greatest tragedies. In this remarkable and intimate account, author G. J. Meyer draws on exhaustive research to bring to life the story of how the Great War reduced Europe’s mightiest empires to rubble, killed 20 million people, and cracked the foundations of the world we live in today. World War I is unique in the number of questions about it that remain unsettled. After more than 90 years, scholars remain divided on these questions, and it seems likely that they always will.

    Andrew Pilecki says: "Excellent Overview of the "Overshadowed" War"
    "Best book on this time period."

    Where does A World Undone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best non-fiction books (audio or otherwise) that I've ever read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Meyer weaves various aspects of the story together by providing background segments that lend a much deeper understanding of the events depicted.


    What about Robin Sachs’s performance did you like?

    English accents make for great story-telling...don't know why. :)


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    More of a satisfied feeling that my understanding of the war and it's causes has been greatly increased.


    Any additional comments?

    Meyer clearly illustrates missed opportunities and inexplicable decisions that led to the war starting and being prolonged. Fascinating stuff.
