MEDIA REVIEWS
Perhaps the single most welcome volume from the avalanche of books published to mark the centenary of the war. It fills enormous gaps in our knowledge of the war ... Herwig's account has many strengths, not least its sheer readability. * Austrian Studies *
Holger Herwig's deft handling of sources and elegant writing bring the complexities of the Central Powers to life for his readers. In doing so, he provides the best analysis of Germany and Austria-Hungary available anywhere. His work also allows us to see the war efforts of the Allies in sharper perspective. This new edition, like the first, is a masterful book that should be on the shelf of every student of the First World War. * Michael Neiberg, author of Dance of the Furies: Europe and the Outbreak of World War I (2011) *
Professor Herwig's study of Germany and Austria-Hungary in World War I has long been recognized as the best book in any language on the subject. By revising and updating his original work he has ensured his book will remain indispensable to anyone seeking to understand the actions and experiences of those two powers in the war. -- Robert Doughty, retired Professor of History, U.S. Military Academy, West Point, USA
