The Greatest Day in History

By Nicholas Best

‘This volume sets an example that will be hard to equal’ – Daily Mail

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, after a dramatic week of negotiations and military offensives, the gunfire officially ceased. The Great War was over.

The story of Armistice Day remains largely untold despite a roll call of eyewitnesses from Hitler and Charles de Gaulle to Harry Truman and Marlene Dietrich. Nicholas Best’s groundbreaking account reveals the twists and turns of the events leading up to the end of the war and presents a compelling snapshot of the whole world at the end of a truly momentous week.
