it was amazing

John Keegan is an amazing writer. He made the complicated events leading up to World War I, and continuing for four brutal years just blaze off the page. I read it after The Guns of August and it really filled in some blanks. He may be an even better writer than Barbara Tuchman. I really learned a lot about the Great War, and more generally about how wars are conducted and what debacles they become. A stellar work.
