    Good and New Perspective

    Offers a new perspective on the Great War. Mosier provides much detail in building and supporting his arguments that the Germans were winning. However, when it comes to how the Americans saved the Allies, Mosier runs out of steam and doesn't close the sale. Even though the ending is less than satisfying this is a book worth reading.

    Excellent recasting of WWI

    If your like me, the standard text book explanation of the events of WWI where never clear and left an number of questions unanswered. Even college European History classes treat WWI as a mysterious event which began with an assaination, progressed to a stalemate, and ended in a German defeat; all the while Germany is presented as being ill prepared and suffering humiliating loss after loss. This book explains and dispells the this specious ideal and shows how "German won the battles and how America saved France and England". A difficukt read I would not recommend it for a saturday afternoon reader, rather an individual with an enthusiastic intrest in history and a little background in military history (a lot of technical details and jargon).
