Paperback
Saul David’s 100 DAYS TO VICTORY is a totally original, utterly engaging account of the Great War – the first book to tell the story of the ‘war to end all wars’ through the events of one hundred key days between 1914 and 1918.

100 DAYS TO VICTORY is a 360 degree portrait of a global conflict that stretched east from the shores of Britain to the marshes of Iraq, and south from the forests of Russia to the bush of German South East Africa. Throughout his gripping narrative we hear the voices of men and women both eminent and ordinary, some who were spectators on the Home Front, others – including Saul David’s own family – who were deeply embroiled in epic battles that changed the world forever.

100 DAYS TO VICTORY is the work of a great historian and supreme story teller. Most importantly, it is also an enthralling tribute to a generation whose sacrifice should never be forgotten.

Reviews

A free-flowing work of great originality and insight.
Charles Spencer
Fascinating, original...vivid...brilliantly conveys the global scale of the conflict...if you usually find military history rather turgid you must read this.
The Bookseller
Saul David has come up with an ingenious approach... The charm of this unorthodox technique becomes clear as soon as you open the book... a remarkable book.
Daily Mail
A splendid read... a specialist in 19th century colonial wars and a fine writer, David has intelligently boiled down recent scholarship on the war.
The Observer
Splendidly well written - fluent, engaging, well paced and, despite the grim subject matter, often entertaining.
New Statesman
Original and effective...Professor David exceeds the reader's expectations...one of the best measured accounts.
Times Literary Supplement
All the really important dates are here, as well as some inspired choices ... If any book will inspire readers to investigate further, this one will.
Mail on Sunday
Absorbing because of, not despite, the harrowing detail.
The Independent
100 Days to Victory adopts a remarkably original approach to telling the story of the First World War in an accessible fashion ... the author is gifted with acute judgement as well as accomplished narrative skills. His book offers a really admirable introduction to the conflict.
Max Hastings, The Times
