'Meyer's sketches of the British Cabinet, the Russian Empire, the aging Austro-Hungarian Empire ... are lifelike and plausible ... [The Fate of Nations] has an instructive value that can scarcely be measured.' -- Los Angeles Times
'With an historian's eye for clear-headed analysis and a storyteller's talent for detail and narrative, G. J. Meyer presents a compelling account of the blunders that produced the world's first "great war" and set the stage for many of the tragic events that followed.' -- Steve Gillon, The History Channel
'A masterful narrative history that eloquently conveys the sense of a civilization engaged in massive self-destruction ... Meyer offers interesting and controversial insights into the motivations of many of the key participants. This is an outstanding survey of a cataclysm that still casts a shadow over world affairs.' -- Booklist
