Críticas:

A searching study of the war to end all wars. Kirkus Reviews 20050115 Neiberg melds an analysis of the strategic issues facing belligerents during World War I with an understanding of the tactical challenges of conducting war in a modern industrial world...By including appraisals of the other fronts Neiberg also shows why the western front was the crucible of victory and defeat...This book reflects the remarkable development of the historiography of World War I that has occurred over the past decade. -- Frederic Krome Library Journal 20050201 In recounting the events of WWI with skill and clarity, Neiberg...achieves a fine balance of narrative and analyses--no easy feat in a one-volume study. And Neiberg also goes considerably further afield than do many one-volume accounts. Publishers Weekly 20050124 Michael Neiberg dissects the resulting carnage on both sides with chilling precision. -- Tony Maniaty The Australian An authoritative, compelling, and brief narrative of World War I in its military and political aspects. To provide a comprehensive account of the battles and leaders of World War I in a book fewer than four hundred pages is a major achievement. Michael S. Neiberg has accomplished that feat in a lucid, fast-paced treatment of the conflagration that raged across the entire world from 1914 to 1918 in Fighting the Great War: A Global History...Neiberg has a good eye for the relevant anecdote and offers fresh judgments about many of the key figures in this great conflict, such as Erich Ludendorff and Douglas Haig. He is also adept at explaining battles and their significance. There are few better introductions to the complex issues and enduring historical problems that grew out of the war than Neiberg's book. Balanced in its judgments, crisp in its prose, and powerful in its evocation of a formative moment in world civilization, Fighting the Great War is a significant scholarly contribution. -- Lewis L. Gould Magill Book Reviews 20050901 Michael S. Neiberg's military history Fighting the Great War...shows the global reach of the war machine. Neiberg refuses to conclude that the war was futile or pointless, though he provides lots of evidence of strategic and tactical failures on both sides of the line. -- Jay Winter Times Literary Supplement 20060616 Tackling a topic such as the First World War in a multivolume history is a major achievement; doing it justice in a single book is exceptional. Michael S. Neiberg's Fighting the Great War is just that kind of a book. On 364 pages, divided into thirteen chapters, the author narrates the momentous events and battles on all fronts--the Western in France and Belgium; the Eastern in Russia and Austria-Hungary; the Middle Eastern in Turkey, Mesopotamia, and Palestine; and the African in South Africa and German South West Africa...Neiberg's book is a clear, concise, and remarkably balanced study of the war that shaped the twentieth century...It is an excellent analysis of the political and military forces that drove the conflict to its bitter conclusion. -- Bianka J. Adams Armed Forces & Society In a fine general history of the First World War, Michael S. Neiberg attributes the massive bloodletting on the Western front to political leaders who insisted that the armed forces remain on the offensive, not to obtuse military officers as many others have. -- Mark Moyar Historical Journal 20070101 The author of this book has written a lucid account of the military aspects of World War I. Based largely on secondary sources, his work takes the reader through the conflict's major campaigns and presents a number of crisp judgments on the era's leaders...[G]eneral readers will find the book a stimulating and accessible introduction to the conflict that shaped the course of the twentieth century. -- Neil Heyman Historian
