I admittedly read very little non-fiction, I unfortunately get bogged down in the detail and lack of story and thus restrict myself to specific subjects that I find fascinating. WWI is one of those.

I didn't realize that I knew so little about WWI until I read this book.
It seems impossible to understand WWII without knowing this war and the politics that started and ended it.
For a war that had and has so many repercussions for Europe, it amazes me that I didn't know more.

The author did a fantastic job of creating an overall history of WWI. While I'm sure the history of this war could only be fully and comprehensively told in a minimum 6 volume set of 800 page books, this one is a very good option for a shorter version.
