Review The final week of World War One, and the day of the Armistice itself, as told through the eyes of people on both sides of the line, the home fronts and across the globe.

This is really an epitome of many previously published accounts, letters, diaries and memoirs. Hence there is a heavy emphasis on famous people (and those to become famous). If you want to know what Hemingway was up to on 11 November 1918, or Marlene Dietrich, or Churchill, then this is for you.

An interesting slice of time, but not exactly hard historical investigation.

Rated PG for some war violence. 2.5/5

Description

A decent book, with a comprehensive view of the collapse of Germany prior to the Armistice and a view to how close it was from not being signed. Occasionally took too broad of a view, and there were too many threads to really follow from beginning to end.

I'm also not a fan of the author's desire to include historical people of interest when they had tangential or no impact on the main crux of the story other than having been alive in Europe at the time. Similarly, his need to categorize so many of the individuals as pro- or anti- armistice seems a little contrived and judgmental given our knowledge of the future history.

The end becomes nigh unreadable and should have been greatly shortened -- despite including contra-examples, there are simply too many repetitions of the same celebration of impromptu parades, strangers kissing, and freed citizens celebrating. True, yes. But excruciatingly repetitive.
