    Inhaltsangabe

    Penguin presents the unabridged edition of The War of the World by Niall Ferguson, read by Saul Reichlin.

    The world at the beginning of the 20th century seemed for most of its inhabitants stable and relatively benign. Globalising, booming economies married to technological breakthroughs seemed to promise a better world for most people.

    Instead the 20th century proved to be overwhelmingly the most violent, frightening and brutalised in history, with fanatical, often genocidal warfare engulfing most societies between the outbreak of the First World War and the end of the Cold War.

    What went wrong? How did we do this to ourselves? The War of the World comes up with compelling, fascinating answers. It is Niall Ferguson's masterpiece.

    Niall Ferguson at his best

    Niall Ferguson is a historian with strong convictions which as often as not run against the mainstream. In the "War of the World" he represents a wealth of new (at least for me) and mostly quite personal sources and though he nudges the reader / listener to his own opinions with all this material you are in a good position to decide for yourself.
    The part about racism in the 3rd Reich is brillant and shows the total absurdity of the Nazi ideology.
    Saul Reichlin as reader was a loveable choice.
