Review quote

'Splendid... This is the book that should be read and studied by a generation of students of European history' - Walter Laqueur 'William Hitchcock's The Struggle for Europe is not only shrewd and comprehensive, but written with a wit and vigour that make it a real joy to read. It deserves to be the standard work on the subject for many years to come' - Sir Michael Howard C.H., formerly Regius Professor of Modern History Oxford 'One could not want a clearer exposition and a better guide at the present time' - Walter Laqueur, Los Angeles Times 'A fine study ... it has the priceless merit of clarity, indispensable to those trying to pick their way through the European labyrinth' - Piers Brendon, Daily Telegraphshow more
