“ 'A gripping account of World War I - from tactics to strategy. The reader feels the horror of the trenches in France' ”
General Tommy Franks (US Army, Ret'd)
“ 'The best novel about the Great War since Remarque's All Quiet on the Western Front...compelling, authentic, and imaginative' ”
John Mosier, author of 'The Myth of the Great War'
“ 'A riveting masterpiece revolving around the ghastly conflict that still profoundly defines the world we live in' ”
“ 'Shaara has demonstrated that rarest of writing gifts, making literature read like history and history read like literature...he brings World War I to pulsating life' ”
Joseph Persico, author of '11th Month, 11th Day, 11th Hour: Armistice Day 1918'
“ 'An epic account...a gruesomely graphic portrayal of the brutality and folly of total war...his descriptions of individual combat in the air and the mass slaughter on the ground are stark, vivid and gripping. He also offers compelling portraits of the politicians and generals whose strategies and decisions killed millions and left Europe a discontented wasteland' ”
“ 'Jeff Shaara's To the Last Man lets you live WWI in the air, in the mud, and in the councils of government in a way that makes you understand how the participants experienced it. Von Richtofen, Lufbery, Ludendorff, and Pershing come alive and their collective experience makes you wish you been there to watch it, but glad you didn't!' ”
John S. Grinalds, Major General, U.S. Marine Corps (Retired)
