What People are Saying About This

Norman Stone

Sean McMeekin has written a classic of First World War history... superb and original.
Norman Stone, author of World War One: A Short History

Donald M. McKale

A seminal work that demonstrates for the first time that Imperial Germany's jihad strategy in World War I-- exploiting pan-Islamism in the Middle East to stoke the fire of native Muslim revolts against the British and against Russia-- played a crucial role in German plans to win the war. Now students of the 'Great War' will no longer be able to dismiss the German 'holy war' strategy as merely peripheral. There is much to be learned in this superb work about the recent past and today in the Middle East.

Donald M. McKale, author of War By Revolution: Germany and Great Britain in the Middle East in the Era of World War I
