Gripping Account This is the second book I've read by Charles Mee (the first was The Deal, about how Stalin, Churchill, and Roosevelt remade the world after World War II). He is a talented writer. In this book, he takes us behind the scenes to the Paris peace talks that ended World War I. He does a masterful job of portraying the key players. This reads like a novel. Highly recommended.
