100 Days to Victory adopts a remarkably original approach to telling the story of the First World War in an accessible fashion ... the author is gifted with acute judgement as well as accomplished narrative skills. His book offers a really admirable introduction to the conflict. -- Max Hastings * The Times * Absorbing because of, not despite, the harrowing detail. * The Independent * David picks out 100 individual days from the war that allow him to paint the entire picture ... as ever, he is at his best when shells are landing and whistles are blowing. * Sunday Times * All the really important dates are here, as well as some inspired choices ... If any book will inspire readers to investigate further, this one will. * Mail on Sunday * A free-flowing work of great originality and insight. * Charles Spencer * Fascinating, original...vivid...brilliantly conveys the global scale of the conflict...if you usually find military history rather turgid you must read this. * The Bookseller * Splendidly well written - fluent, engaging, well paced and, despite the grim subject matter, often entertaining. * New Statesman * Saul David has come up with an ingenious approach... The charm of this unorthodox technique becomes clear as soon as you open the book... a remarkable book. * Daily Mail * A splendid read... a specialist in 19th century colonial wars and a fine writer, David has intelligently boiled down recent scholarship on the war. * The Observer * Original and effective...Professor David exceeds the reader's expectations...one of the best measured accounts. * Times Literary Supplement *
