Read full description of the books World War I:I started typing my thoughts on this but clipped it after I hit the five paragraph mark. But in short, I liked it, to a point. It's informative but an easy read at the same time, and very well-researched for a one-volume. But it's half history and half S.L.A. Marshall Opinion Hour. The impression I got was of a bunch of Europeans bumbling around until America showed up and saved the day. When early battles are won, it's not due to the winner's skill but the loser's stupidity, until America is on the case. Then the battles are won due to American bravery. Marshall is also fond of calling every general or politician stupid or insane.
All in all I would recommend it. It's a good read. You just need to be discerning about what is history and what is Marshall's opinion.
