Hundred Days: The Campaign That Ended World War I

We rated this book:


When the United States entered World War I, it was the beginning of the end. All that was left was to push the Germans further and further back, until they realized that their situation was hopeless and they sued for peace. This book recounts the final hundred days of World War I as the English, French, and American armies went on the offensive and started to push the Germans back and force them to face the reality of the situation on the ground. This book covers both the sides during this time period, and of particular fascination is the German side, where things started to break down: material, men, political forces, and society. Many books have been written about the final days and the road that led to the armistice, and this is another one in that vein. It covers individual battles, how particular units fared, what went right, and what went wrong. The author covers both sides, so he will look at the French side first, and then cover how the Germans experienced the same thing. It is a decent book, nothing to really be excited about. It is another book on World War I, with the 100th anniversary coming up.
