Book Review: Paris 1919

One of the traits I have is I love reading about historical events. Many people find history boring, but I am not one of those. I like books that tell me what led to certain events – what caused them, their repercussions, and so on.

My friend Michelle also shares that trait, and one day not long ago we were talking about that, and she recommended a book to me called Paris 1919, which details the history of the 1919 Paris peace talks following the end of World War 1. I was warned it might be boring if one doesn’t like history, but since I do, I didn’t find it boring at all. There are a few spots in it that are a bit mundane, but it is a fascinating look at how the Allies came to the decisions that they did, and it shows you that even today, those decisions they made still reverberate thru the current political situation today – particularly the Balkans, and the Middle East.

If you’re interested in that sort of thing, this is a book I highly recommend.
