On a more serious note thank you for linking this. I've been listening to Dan Carlins rendition of WWI and this seems like a much less rambling piece to read in companion.
The best reading I've done on WWI is a fictionalization.Follett goes to great pains to justify his choices. From the non-fiction I've read, he takes few liberties with actual history. I recommend it wholeheartedly.
