    " World War I through the viewpoint of conscientious objectors, regular folk, war enthusiasts and military men. Eye opening in the light of TV series like Downton Abbey and Parade's End. An illuminating and well written introduction to the war and social issues of the time. I will use this as a springboard to explore more. I recommend this one for all with an interest in the Great War. "

    " Insightful look at esp British anti-war protesters during WWI. Does a good job especially in discussing families divided by the conflict ie. Pankhursts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mindy | 1/18/2014

    " Almost cried any number of times-- the whole things was just so sad and senseless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 1/14/2014

    " A good read about the historical consequences for Britain during and after WWI. I would have liked a bigger picture view of the social consequences of the socialist movements in Britain. The author gave good data, but what are the implications? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo Mundy | 1/13/2014

    " I wanted to know more about the origins of WWI which I learned. It also gave an excellent coverage of all of the social upheaval that was going on at the time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patti K | 1/7/2014

    " I don't always read histories, but this one is very smoothly written with many great details about the variety of players in WWI. Of especial interest to me were the portraits of anti-war pacifists in Britain. An enjoyable history; of course with the gruesome details one would expect from a history of war. Recommend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 1/6/2014

    " I didn't feel that To End All Wars was as strong as Hochschild's other works. He tried to follow too many historical figures at once, and the book dragged through 1915-1917. To be fair, the war itself dragged on too, so that's a major reason, but it could have been trimmed in the middle. The beginning and the end were more engaging, and overall I learned a lot about the war resisters, the leadership on each side (though mainly the British), and the beginning and end of the war. I'd recommend it to history buffs. "

    " A fascinating look at the social history of possibly the most senseless conflict in history. I was surprised at the commitment of the anti-war activists, many enduring prison and even execution. Really great read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sabrina | 12/11/2013

    " This is the second book I've read by this author. He has a way of making even the most random detail intriguing and great at weaving seeminglingly unrelated events and people in history. I look forward to reading his other books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Martelle | 7/20/2013

    " Great work by a master popular historian... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicki Schwenkbeck | 7/28/2012

    " Great book about not only the battles themselves but the toll taken on humanity in the loss of lives, as well as the inhuman weapons and science used on and by both sides. Also an interesting look at the pacifists, socialists, and others who futily fought to end the war. I highly recommend! "

    " I struggled to finish this towards the end. I enjoy learning about World War I, but Hochschild's focus on anti-war protestors just didn't intrigue me, and I think I just tired of it halfway through. This was a bit of a disappointment, because I really liked 'King Leopold's Ghost' by him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rod Zemke | 6/12/2012

    " The writing was a little disjointed, but a good history of the anti-war movement. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah Bennett | 4/19/2012

    " Both inspiring and absolutely heartbreaking. Yet another flawless history by Hochschild. He introduced me to Alice Wheeldon about whom I cannot wait to read more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barry Morris | 11/20/2011

    " Excellent history of World War I. A tad too much viewing through the eyes of anti-war activists. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Djamila | 11/3/2011

    " Amazing book. I knew so very little about WW1. This book is written so well, and tells the story of WW1 from the pro and anti- war voices in Great Britain. Absolutely brilliant book. A must read for anyone with even the slightest interest in WW1. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mal Clough | 8/16/2011

    " having read dozens of books about ww1, I found this one unique in that it weaves real lives into the narrative. starting with victoria's jubilee in 1897, it traces key personalities who had influence on the outcome the war both positive and negative. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leticia | 8/3/2011

    " The story of Great Britain leading up to and the turmoil of the First World War. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Thompson | 10/30/2010

    " At once sad, maddening, clarifying. Excellent read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shane Gower | 5/24/2010

    " A very interesting read! I like how he mirrored the British General John French and his anti-war activist sister! This is a nice analysis of how the war impacted various parts of society! Fascinating book! "
