Praise for Andrew Roberts and his books
“Gripping. A brilliantly clear and accessible account of the war in all its theaters. Roberts’s prose is unerringly precise and strikingly vivid. It is hard to imagine a better-told military history of World War II.”
—The New York Times Book Review

“Elegantly balances fact, thought and fresh, clear prose. . . . Roberts has set a high bar for future historians of mankind’s greatest bloodbath; Roberts splendidly weaves a human tragedy into a story of war’s remorseless statistics.”
The Wall Street Journal
“A magnificent book; it manages to be distinctive but not eccentric, comprehensive in scope but not cramped by detail, giving due weight both to the extraordinary personalities and to the blind economic and physical forces involved.”
The Economist
“With his new book on the Second World War, Andrew Roberts has not only written the single best history of that conflict but has also claimed his place as one of our top historians.”
—The Daily Beast
“A huge, rich, deep, witty, humane and unapologetically admiring biography that is a pleasure to read.”
The Telegraph
“Entertaining, even addictive . . . Roberts writes with great vigor, style, and fluency.”
—The Sunday Times (London)
“Magnificent . . . Roberts’s fine book encompasses all the evidence to give a brilliant portrait of the man. The book, as it needs to be, is massive, yet the pace is brisk and it’s never overwhelmed by the scholarly research, which was plainly immense.”
—The Mail on Sunday
