Format: Paperback
I picked up a copy of this book at my local library at some point in the Eighties. Almost twenty years later, I suspect I've forgotten the plot of more mysteries and thrillers than any single person in my tri-state area. But "Other Paths to Glory" remained with me. In "Other Paths," a young military historian is recruited as a cold war spy when it appears that a modern mystery is somehow connected to World War I. The characters are well-developed, the plot is tight and suspenseful, but most of all the haunting past pervades the book and becomes its most compelling character. Price evokes the immanence of history so well that the book is elevated from a good-read-that-might-still-be-forgotten to a genre classic.

Format: Hardcover
This is one of Anthony Price's strongest works. The narrative is taut and suspenseful, with a complex chain of events occurring in the modern day which hark back to a little-known battle of the First World War. For historical and military buffs, this is one of the essential books of this genre.
