Review of Paris 1900

Click here for a review of Paris 1900 by Sally Marks, a  US historian, who, according to Wikipedia,  "has written extensively on World War I reparation and interwar diplomacy more generally.”
Mark’s conclusion: "What matters is that MacMillan may succeed where authors of scholarly monographs have failed in convincing a wider audience that the peace settlement in general and the Versailles treaty in particular were not fully or even primarily to blame for a supposed twenty year nightmare and a second world war. If her book accomplishes this, we may all be grateful.”
