A triumph ... one of a tiny handful of historians whose books will still be read in 100 years (Laurence Rees The Mail on Sunday)

Chilling epic-size history ... should be required reading (Harold Evans The New York Times)

The story of how the Old World plunged toward hell for 30 years ... There is no man better qualified than Kershaw to take us through the dark valleys of the world wars and the two sombre intervening decades ... fair-minded, deeply researched and highly readable (Brendan Simms Wall Street Journal)

Authoritative (Nicholas Shakespeare Telegraph)

Kershaw leads his readers through this complex history in a clear and compelling manner (Joanna Bourke Prospect)
