Extremely well written with very logical explanations from the fated Dardanelles expedition to the technicalities of submarine warfareThere are many passages that simply sparkle with Churchillian language and rhetoric The strongest passages are when Churchill describes the broad outlines of the war like the shaky alliance with Russia and Italy He also shows an excellent grasp of the overall European scope of the war – something that would serve him well in the coming years He is not solely concerned with the Western Front in France and hardly sees it as the only facet of the World War He saw this front primarily as a stalemate with both sides bleeding themselves to deathBut at times the book focuses only on Mr Churchill’s perspective of the war For much of the war he was head of the Admiralty until the Dardanelles He speaks volumes on the English government role and its procrastination during the war but little is said of the French government Clemenceau gets only a few scattered lines here and there Surely this great historical figure merits There are several pages on Lord Fisher for instance There are some who compare this work favourably to his monumental Memoirs on the Second World War I cannot agree The ‘World Crisis’ is autobiographical I suppose due to the limited role of Mr Churchill and has a narrower perspectiveIf Mr Churchill had not attained immortal fame and that would have been tragic indeed during the Second World War I do not believe this work would merit much attention today – except perhaps as a personal view of one of the many players of ‘The Great War’
