This audio book presented an exceptionally thorough and detailled account of the year 1914 describing the circumstances leading up to the commencement of WW1. In addition the initial battles and strategies were described in large measure by citing personal accounts from letters and diaries.

If you want a complete history there are better more complete historical works, If you want a decent read and a reasoned analysis of the motivations guiding the various countries and empires as they slid into the biggest bloodletting of the early part of the twentieth century this is it

This is yet another classic by Max Hastings, and is incredibly well written.
It includes many personal glimpses that add that all important personal touch, and the depth of the author's knowledge, and research, is apparent when he paints the bigger picture.

Max Hastings again presents a revealing insight into a important part of our nation's history. He does it a form that, I think, is easily understood and very informative.
A recommended purchase for those interested in the history of world conflicts.

Another brilliant and well researched book by Max Hastings. He has the great gift of bringing into his writing not just the well known and in this case clueless leaders but the ordinary man in the street who served and died in the 1st World War.

Well written and documented, I have many books from Max Hastings and it does the job. You keep reading and learning. The work pointed out the tactical and strategic mistakes made in that year, extending the war almost another four years.
