									The Greatest Day in History
Author: Nicholas Best

Unlike 1945, the First World War did not end neatly with the unconditional surrender of the Germans.
After a dramatic week of negotiations, military offensives and the beginning of a Communist revolution,
the German Imperial regime collapsed. The Allies eventually granted an armistice to a new German
government, and at eleventh hour on the 11th of November, the guns officially ceased fire, but only after
11,000 casualties had been sustained—almost as many as on D-Day. Nicholas Best tells the story in
sweeping, cinematic style, revealing that events were far from pre-ordained. From the generals'
headquarters to the frontline trenches, from the factories to the farms, he reveals the twists and turns that
led to the end of the Great War.
