Product description

Review

“Evocative…. [MacMillan] lays out in superb detail the personalities of power … and the choices they made, or neglected to make, that contributed to the start of the war in August, 1914.” - The Globe and Mail

“Thorough and highly readable.” - National Post

“It is [MacMillan’s] commitment to storytelling and her insistence that ‘there are always choices’ that provides a welcome break from the passive voice of so many First World War tomes.” - Maclean’s

“A richly textured account of the road to war…. Vivid.” - The Guardian (U.K.)

“Splendidly well written—fluent, engaging, well-paced and, despite the grim subject, often entertaining.” - New Statesman

“She writes prose like an Audi—purring smoothly along the diplomatic highway, accelerating effortlessly as she goes the distance. This is a ground-breaking book, decisively shifting the debate away from the hoary old question of Germany's war guilt. MacMillan's history is magisterial—dense, balanced and humane. The story of Europe's diplomatic meltdown has never been better told.” - Spectator

“The Canadian historian laces The War That Ended Peace with deft character sketches and uses sources incisively…MacMillan escorts the reader skilfully through the military, diplomatic and political crises that framed the road to war from 1870 to 1914.” - FT

“Excellent, elegantly written book…as fine an assessment of the reason peace failed as any yet written.” - Saul David

“Margaret MacMillan, the author of Peacemakers, which won numerous prizes, is that wonderful combination—an academic and scholar who writes well, with a marvelous clarity of thought. Her pen portraits of the chief players are both enjoyable and illuminating. Among the cascade of books arriving for the anniversary, this work truly stands out.” - Antony Beevor

About the Author

She is also the author of The Uses and Abuses of History. The past provost of Trinity College at the University of Toronto, she is now the warden of St. Antony’s College at Oxford University.
