"One of the first books to take an effective panoramic view of what was happening, not only in Egypt, Palestine, Turkey, and the Arab regions of Asia but also in Afghanistan and central Asia....Readers will come away from A Peace to End All Peace not only enlightened but challenged—challenged in a way that is brought home by the irony of the title."—The New York Times Book Review
This book contributed more to my understanding of World War I than any other I have read.
Also recommend: David Fromkin's excellent A Peace to End all Peace: The Fall of the Ottoman Empire and the Creation of the Modern Middle East.
Fromkin writes in an engaging style and his clear organization makes this long book fairly easy to read.
This book cleared up a lot of questions I had. I loved how it didn't mince words about the involvement of all concerned. Read morePublished 18 days ago by Monnie

A must read for all in International Studies or in the military, but more important, a must read to those that give senseless opinions of what goes on in the Middle East.Published 4 months ago by MJ
I'am sorry for the misunderstanding. I marked the order 5 stars and when I hit the submit button 1 star showed up. It's 5 stars no matter what shows up.Published 5 months ago by George M. Frey
