This is the second volume of Nick Lloyd’s magisterial, landmark history of the First World War. Having dealt with the much better-known events of the Western Front in Belgium and France, this new book tells the less well understood story of the war in the Balkans that was ignited as a struggle between the Austro-Hungarian Empire and Serbia. The conflict sucked in Russia, Germany and Italy, and huge numbers, 16 million soldiers and 2 million civilians, were killed, wounded or maimed in enormous battles that sometimes ranged across a front that could be 100km in length. A beautifully structured, wonderfully well-written account from a historian at the peak of his powers.
