Publisher's Summary

The world will never see another peace conference like the one which took place in Paris in 1919. For six months, the world's major leaders - including Woodrow Wilson, president of the United States, David Lloyd George, prime minister of Great Britain, and Georges Clemenceau, prime minister of France - met to discuss the peace settlements which were to end World War One.

Vital to listen to

This book is essential. If you want an understanding of how the world has taken the direction it has, give it a go - understanding the mechanics of WW1 is important, but the political decision s made afterwards are much more so. The author (and narrator) gets her points across welll - the book is well structured, beautifully read and benefits from multiple listenings. A really excellent choice.

Brilliant and important history

Set of lectures by MacMillan who wrote longer book of the same name. As compelling as it is important to understanding the modern world, especially Europe.
