"Analytical, concise, and coherent . . . If you want to know how it happened, read Keegan's thoughtful and elegant prose." -Los Angeles Times 

"To write history is to choose, and Mr. Keegan's choices and preferences are as interesting and stimulating as any I have seen . . . Boldy written and fair minded." -New York Times Book Review
