4.0 out of 5 stars best current book on the causes??, 11 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arguably the best book in print on the causes of the Great War, though by a short head I prefer the account by Max Hastings ('Catastrophe') and find his strictures more to my taste. But Prof MacMillan provides fascinating detail.

She does get a few things wrong: Henry Wilson did not come from Ulster (Longford, actually); Erskine Childers was not executed by the British (executed by the Provisional Government of the Irish Free State); and Kemal Atataturk was still plain Mustafa Kemal in 1914.
