"In 1918: THE YEAR OF VICTORIES Martin Evans examines the final year of the Great War. I thought this a very worthy presentation of those events. If you have a good knowledge of WWI history, you will still enjoy the read. If you're not a WWI aficionado, you will find this volume most enlightening and much more enjoyable to read than some of the other volumes available which chronicle these same events. There is a clear bias towards the Allied forces, though Evans presents information from both the Allies and the Central Powers perspectives. Evans does not shy away from presenting German acts of heroism as well as those of Allied troops. There is an interspersing of personal letters and accounts presented in conjunction with each battle as it unfolds. Some of these are emotionally difficult to read as you find first hand accounts of the horrific scenes of trench warfare, artillery bombardments and machine gun fire on virtually exposed infantry. Evans also presents good insight on the ego-driven strained relationships between Haig, Petain, Pershing and others. This is one of the few books on WWI that strives to give the American Expeditionary Force its just due on bringing an end to the war. This is a very nice volume that you will love to have added to the World War I shelf of your library."
