Essential reading for anyone who wants to know the backbone of events amd political context of the battles amd outcomes.
"Full of details, but no big picture"
I liked very much The Second World War, and thought that WWI would be similar. But it focuses mainly on what Churchill himself was involved- The Drdanells campain. Telegrms between generals are described in detail, whereas the global picture of the war id not mentioned.
"Did not like reader"
I am afraid to say the reader or readers tried to sound like Churchill. No good. spoiled the book for me. Have you tried Tim Piggot Smith as a reader? he does a brilliant job.
