'Warlords' is an interesting and worthwhile read. Partly through the first part, I was reminded, in the best way, of Barbara Tuchman’s 'Guns of August', which I have treasured as the gold standard of writing about the history of wars in the last century. 'Warlords' has the same economical, dispassionate style, a style ideally suited to the subject matter of Canada’s Borden and Mackenzie King. In trying to do justice to both of these Prime Ministers, Tim Cook succeeds better with Borden than with King, but that is not a criticism. I believe that it is virtually impossible to be completely objective about King, and Tim Cook’s portrait of the eccentric King is certainly compelling. Overall, this is an excellent addition to any collection about Canada’s history. ( )
