Today is Veterans’ Day in the United States. November 11 is Armistice Day — the day that fighting ceased in World War I. The Great War did not formally end until seven months later, with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, but the United States memorialized the cessation of fighting rather than the formal end of the war. (More background info on the Veterans’ Day is available on the website of the US Department of Veterans’ Affairs). Since today is Armistice Day, it seemed an appropriate day to post a review of this book!
