Synopsis: 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 Kaiser fled to Holland. The Allies eventually granted an armistice to a new German government, and at 11.00hrs on 11 November, the guns officially ceased fire, but only after 11,000 casualties had been sustained -- more than on D-Day! The story of this remarkable day has never been told properly, and yet the roll call of eyewitnesses who left us their impressions includes Adolf Hitler, Charles de Gaulle, Harry S Truman, Anthony Eden, Marie Curie, Maurice Chevalier, Richard Strauss -- and future famous generals MacArthur, Patton and Montgomery. Nicholas Best tells the story in his signature cinematic style, revealing that events were far from pre-ordained. From the generals' headquarters to the frontline trenches, from the factories to the farms, Nicholas Best reveals the twists and turns that led to the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

About the Author: Nicholas Best grew up in Kenya and was educated there, in England and at Trinity College, Dublin. He served on a short service commission in the Grenadier Guards and spent a year at Harvard before becoming a fulltime writer. He has written novels, travel and history books, and has seen his work translated into several foreign languages and serialised on Radio 4. He was FINANCIAL TIMES fiction critic during the 1990s and has reviewed for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH, SUNDAY TIMES, OBSERVER, TIMES LITERARY SUPPLMENT and LONDON REVIEW OF BOOKS. He lives in the academic community in Cambridge.
