The book itself, as a work of history, is excellent and very readable. I have to give the *product* 1 star though as the pictures - of which the book, unlike many histories, has many - are of terrible quality in the ebook version. How this gets by quality control is a mystery to me - but for now I suggest you buy the paper version.

At times a bit difficult to follow the author's British diction, but all-in-all a good read. The book is packed full of factual accounts which mostly follows the war chronologically. The chapters give much insight to the complex military and diplomatic relationships that were in play at the time that let you understand it was more than just an assassination of Franz Joseph that started the war. Excellent notes and references for further self study if desired.

I'm halfway through the book. Although I haven't read Hew Strachen's three part series on WW1, this individual volume seems to be a hurried conglomeration of his other WW1 books. The material is dense and hard to follow at times. Some events are explained in-depth, while others such as the Battle of the Marne are given a couple pages. Although the chapters seem to be arranged in chronological order, each chapter bounces between different theaters of the war, leaving the reader confused. It's really hard to simply pick up this book and begin reading where you stopped the day before. It is not in-depth enough for use as a resource for students, and it is too dense for casual reader.
