This Australian historian is moved by two convictions: that historians can speak to the general reader, and that World War I was worthwhile. He goes far toward demonstrating both in this vigorous chronicle of British military, political, diplomatic, and social life (in more or less that order of predominance) during the war years. His military history is detailed and colorful; his curiously detached analysis of participation in the war as a policy decision is intriguing and thorough. A solid, accessible account, recommended for larger collections and worth considering for academic and general collections of any size. Nancy C. Cridland, Indiana Univ. Libs., Bloomington
