Editorial Reviews

"By bringing out an English translation, OUP have put all scholars of the war in their debt. If any volume can lay claim to being definitive, this is surely it. The authors have read almost unbelievably widely in the primary and secondary sources ... it will endure ... an indispensable guideto the latest research on most key aspects of the war ... the range and intellectual energy ... will make it an invaluable work of reference for undergraduate and researchers ... as valuable a commemoration of the war as any." --Mark Mazower, History Today 29/08/1997
