Carl Davies, November 2016 Book Club Prize Winner:

Having been in a profession that has enabled me to live and work in a number of countries around the world over the course of my career, it has taken me far too long to discover the brilliance of Sir Martin Gilbert.

It was whilst reading an account of the Second World War by another author, that I was referenced to Sir Martin’s work on the subject.

In my view, Sir Martin’s work surpasses other accounts of WW11 and I find myself extremely eager to add Sir Martin’s many other works to my personal library.
