Hundred Days -  The End of World War One

With Nick Lloyd

A New York Post 'must-read book', 2014


The brutal, heroic and extraordinary final days of the First World War.

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day in November 1918, the guns of the Western Front fell silent.

The Armistice, which brought the Great War to an end, marked a seminal moment in modern European and World history. Yet the story of how the war ended remains little-known. Nick Lloyd examines the last days of the war and asks the question: how did it end? Beginning at the heralded turning-point on the Marne in July 1918, Hundred Days traces the epic story of the next four months, which included some of the bloodiest battles of the war.

Nick Lloyd FRHistS is an English historian and writer. He is Reader in Military and Imperial History at King's College London.
