World War I - The why?

If you are looking for an excellent review of what Europe was like in the years leading up to WWI this is probably one of the best authors to help explain it.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/159...pf_rd_i=507846

Two volumns now one and in hardcover at a greatly discounted price.

Cheers.

For a German point of view, I very much enjoyed 'The German Wars' by Michael Palmer. Sorry I could not post the Amazon link - not allowed to yet.

I find Tuchman to be extremely biased in her writing, pretty much just regurgitating the "official" British version the war and its causes. However she is a great writer....

I have just recommended Niall Ferguson's The Pity of War on another thread, or there is Dreadnought by Robert K Massie, subtitled Britain,Germany and the coming of the Great War,: very readable.
