    Description

    The fighting that raged in the East during the First World War was every bit as fierce as that on the Western Front, but the titanic clashes between three towering empires - Russia, Austro-Hungary, and Germany - remains a comparatively unknown facet of the Great War.

    With the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the war in 2014, Collision of Empires is a timely expose of the bitter fighting on this forgotten front - a clash that would ultimately change the face of Europe forever. Drawing on firsthand accounts and detailed archival research, this is a dramatic retelling of the tumultuous events of the first year of the war, with the battles of Tannenberg and the Masurian Lakes in East Prussia followed by the Russo-Austrian clashes in Galicia and the failed German advance toward Warsaw.

    Best book non-fiction book ever on the Eastern Front in 1914

    This title is not only an outstanding work of military history on any period, it is by far the best non-fiction book ever on the Eastern Front in 1914. The narration of the Audible version is excellent. I very much hope Audible will produce the authors’ other titles as well.

    Let’s hope they release the next books

    This book and the next 3 books on this series are the best I’ve found on the subject of the Great War on the east front , a subject I find fascinating. . It touches on the Franco Prussian and the Austrian Prussian wars . It explains the summer of 1914 in depth in Berlin , St. Petersburg and Vienna . Finally , the majority of the book is the actual fighting that took place in Prussia , Galicia and Serbia in 1914 . A number of high profile personalities are also looked at in detail . The narration is a bit dry but satisfactory. The book itself is A+ fantastic .

    Excellent Review of a Little Knows Theater of War

    I am retired miltary after 32 years service and hold two bachelor's and one Master's Degree. I also am a student of military history but,actually knew very little about the day to day fighting on the Eastern Front of World War One. I learned a great deal from this book. There was so much information provided that I will need to listen to the book a second time (this time with an atlas open) in order to digest it all. I had assumed that it was the conglomerate makeup of the Austro-Hungarian forces that caused their debacle. The "Collision of Empires" clarifies the many other reasons that the Austro-Hungarian Forces did so badly in WW-I...

    Interesting Topic, Difficult to Finish

    I've always loved World War I history, and an examination of the lesser known fronts always manages to pique my interest, but i had the most difficult time finishing this audiobook. Despite a daily total of 2.5 hours commuting and a 3 hour plane ride, it took me two months to finish this one, and I'm not sure why. The story is good and well-written, putting emphasis on the personalities responsible for the debacle on the Eastern Front. The narrator, while a bit dry in that academic fashion, is nonetheless engaging and manages to keep everything interesting. I think the big problem is that it's attempting to fill a research gap and sacrificing pacing in order to capture every detail, which is great for historians, not so much for listeners.

    Excellent Military History

    Fantastic book if you’re a fan of military history. Excellent narration and fascinating subject that is difficult to find material that is anywhere close to what you find here. 10/10.

    Extremely detailed, succinct Eastern Front intro

    Prit Buttar is an Eastern Front expert in regards to both world wars, and no doubt in general. His knowledge is such that it would be very possible for the reader to not comprehend anything he is trying to convey. It could be extremely over the reader's head, if he wasn't such a good writer. But he's able to translate and make the movements along the WWI eastern front discernible to the reader. And this is just the entry book! Roger Clark makes a most reliable narrator in every book. I can't wait for the German Ascendant, and the rest of the series.

    Felt like a Textbook

    Don’t let my title fool you. The book was good, but not excellent. I found myself zoning out at times during the reading. I would have loved if Prit captured my imagination with better story telling and recounting events with vivid imagery. Put me on the front lines of Tanenburg! Still my favorite WW1 book is “A Storm in Flanders” by Winston Groom. Talk about imagery and story telling!

    Very interesting

    The story of the Eastern Front during The Great War. The backstories and stories of the people who shaped it.
