Hundred Days: The Campaign That Ended World War I by Nick Lloyd

HundredDays

Reviewed by Jennifer Rude Klett (Library Staff)

Finally, a World War I book that acknowledges the contributions of the US Doughboys. Thank you, Mr. Lloyd. I immensely appreciated the information on the Americans and attention paid to the last one hundred days of the war, something that many Great War books do not adequately cover. The German perspective was also refreshing to see from an Allied author, again something that is often missing. Mr. Lloyd possesses a gift for both history and writing, which isn’t necessarily present with many books written by academic historians. I highly recommend Hundred Days: The Campaign That Ended World War I. This is a timely (the centennial of the beginning of World War I is 2014) book for history buffs.
