    More than any other event, the First World War made the twentieth century. In this boldly conceived book, aimed to appeal not only to students but also to the general reader, Niall Ferguson explodes many of the myths surrounding the war.

    Publisher and industry reviews

    UK Kirkus review
    Timed to coincide with the 80th anniversary of the Armistice, this new interpretation of World War I by one of our most exciting young historians is likely to become the most read book on the subject for some years. Engagingly written and incisive in its judgements, it deals with its political background and military course, no less than its economic consequences and enduring cultural significance. From predictions of war to the enthusiasm to join up, and from the horror of battlefields, Ferguson brings a narrative power and lightness of touch. His provocative argument is that conflict in 1914 was far from inevitable, and that Britain's involvement brought about a global nightmare. (Kirkus UK)

    O avtorju

    -Niall Ferguson-

    NIALL FERGUSON (1964) je večkrat nagrajeni britanski zgodovinar in predavatelj na harvardski univerzi (ob tem sodeluje tudi s prestižnima in uglednima univerzama Oxford in Stanford), ki se je specializiral za področji ekonomske in politične zgodovine. Je avtor štirinajstih strokovnih knjig, ki večinoma posegajo na področje kulturne in ekonomske zgodovine zahodne civilizacije, med drugim Imperij(2003, o vzponu angleškega imperija), Kolos (2004, o vzponu in zatonu Amerike) in Vzpon denarja(2008, o finančni zgodovini sveta). Poleg tega je tudi kolumnist in redni pisec člankov za priznane svetovne časopise in revije, kot sta Time in Newsweek. Po petih njegovih knjigah so bile posnete dokumentarne serije, Civilizacijo, ki je prvi prevod njegovega dela v slovenščino, pa smatrajo za njegovo najboljše delo doslej.
