The pointless fighting on the last day of the war is the perfect metaphor for the four years that preceded it, years of senseless slaughter for hollow purposes. This book is sure to become the definitive history of the end of a conflict Winston Churchill called "the hardest, cruelest, and least-rewarded of all the wars that have been fought".

This book tends gives a general history of the events leading up to the war and eventually to the armistice. Though numerous key events are described in brief detail, the author's purpose is effectively accomplished. For detailed descriptions of battles [X attacks Y's flank, etc.] try Keegan's World War I. But don't pass up this book if you're interested in the affect the war had on the western world's war generation.
Also, the reader's role is very well performed.

Almost Like Being There
Making sense out of WWI is sometimes hard, even for the military history buff. Making sense out of what appears to be the senseless waste of lives in the last days of a war is even harder. This author has done a great job of making sense out of the senseless and doing so in an interesting and intertaining way. This book deserves a place on the must hear or read list of anyone interested in the Great War.
