I found it helpful as on overview. ( )

The photos and their thoughtful captions are what make this the best WWI book, in my opinion. ( )

Read this during GCE History studies when in English Secondary schools Modern History allegedly stopped around 1918, although in the content of certain syllabi there was reference to the causes & events of WW2.
AJP Taylor was the doyen of Modern History studies in G.B. & this book full of erudite yet cut-to-the-chase factual interpretation of the events of World War One is the epitome of Taylor's lucid intellectual powers. The often pithy &/or witty captions to the numerous illustrations encapsulate Taylor's sardonic overview of what the photos were originally intended to be about.
Taylor's enlightening prose captured my interest even at age 15, & I have read this tome 3 times since over decades finding new appreciation of its depth of perception of the core ill-founded reasoning & mistaken (misadventures) purposes that so bedevilled the World of Humanity at war August 1914 to November 1918.
In spite of the years since publication Taylor's History of WW1 is still thoroughly recommended. ( )

This was one of the first books I read about World War One. As usual with [a:Taylor|12831|A.J.P. Taylor|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1287339351p2/12831.jpg], it is brimming over with self confident judgments. Sadly, while I enjoyed this book immensely at the time, the more I have read on the subject, and particularly the more recent scholarship I have read, the lower my opinion of this book has become.

As too often with Taylor, entertainment trumps history. ( )

If you are well read on WWI, this is not a book for you. Provides a fine overview of the conflict including motivations, economics, social aspects (women's issues). Some of the comments by Dr. Taylor are insightful, tongue in cheek as well as outside the norm. I found the final section..1919..particularly interesting. Here he deals with the after effects of the conflict and the shortcomings of the treaty with Germany. A fast read. ( )
