About the Book

Based on previously unused French and German sources, this challenging and controversial new analysis of the war on the Western front from 1914 to 1918 reveals how and why the Germans won the major battles with one-half to one-third fewer casualties than the Allies, and how American troops in 1918 saved the Allies from defeat and a negotiated peace with the Germans.

From armaments and tactics to strategy and politics, he challenges conventional wisdom and forces a rethinking of the war that inaugurated the modern era.” - H.W. Brands, author of The First American and TR: The Last Romantic

“Ther is much in this book I really admire, not least its brilliant recasting of the traditional military narrative.” - Niall Ferguson, author of The Pity of War

“A compelling and novel reassessment of World War I military history.”— - Kirkus Reviews

“Packed with evidence, much of it ingeniously obtained and argued.” - Washington Post
