About the Author

Peter Wilson is the GF Grant Professor of History at the University of Hull and the author of books on Germany and on the Holy Roman Empire.


Peter Wilson is a brave man to undertake a new general survey of one of the most long-lasting, multi-dimensional and controversial wars of all time. It is a joy to report that, at least in this reviewer's opinion, Europe's Tragedy succeeds brilliantly ... His scholarship seems to me remarkable, his prose light and lovely, his judgments fair
*Sunday Times*

An ambitious and accomplished account, abreast of modern scholarship, has been overdue, and EUROPE'S TRAGEDY supplies it all admirably
*Literary Review*

A wonderfully comprehensive and detailed account
*Daily Telegraph*

Magisterial ... a wise, wide-seeking account, tenaciously researched
*The Times Literary Supplement*

A history of prodicious erudition ... a definitive account has been needed, and now Peter Wilson has provided it
*Wall Street Journal*
