Thunder at Twilight is the best kind of popular history, marked by brilliant character sketches, brimming with lively anecdotes, and yet treating an extremely important subject — the outbreak of the first world war — with the gravity it deserves.

Brimming with style, the architecturally stunning three-building complex also houses two cafes.
