The Greatest Day in History

The Greatest Day in History

How, on the Eleventh Hour of the Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month, the First World War Finally Cam

World War I did not end neatly with the Germans’ surrender. 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 11:00 on November 11, the guns officially ceased fire — but only after 11,000 more casualties had been sustained. The London Daily Express proclaimed it “the greatest day in history.”

Nicholas Best tells the story in sweeping, cinematic style, following a set of key participants through the twists and turns of these climactic events, and sharing the impressions of eyewitnesses including Adolf Hitler, Charles de Gaulle, Harry S. Truman, Anthony Eden, and future famous generals MacArthur, Patton, and Montgomery.
