    "Clear Understanding"

    This book is very easy to follow and gives a clear understanding of what sparked the war and which sides the various countries were on. Very interesting and a great read.

    "Good but too short"
    What made the experience of listening to The War to End All Wars: World War I the most enjoyable?

    Overall the book is engaging and covers the basics. But that is about all. It really left me wanting. Even in the way it covered the basic information of World War I, I would've liked it to go into a bit more depth, or even a little commentary about those events Freedman touches on.
