"A valuable, timely, and highly readable overview of the Great War on all major fronts." Peter Simkins MBE, President of the Western Front Association
"This is an exceptional history of WWI... The Great War is a 'must have' book for the scholar and historian of the first World War." The Lone Star Book Review
"In a subject of this size, the scope of the narrative can be intimidating. But Hart, the author of many previous military histories, is up to the task... The Great War is a perfect addition to the libraries of military buffs, especially those obsessed with the cataclysmic effects of 'the war to end all wars.'" ForeWord
"Hart cuts to the chase and goes straight to the major events and fronts that mattered...This is the only single volume Great War history you need." Mark Barnes, War History Online
"Hart demonstrates an admirable command of the subject matter and offers a compelling case for the lasting impact of the 'unwaking nightmare that was WWI.'"
