Why the First World War was inevitable,
This review is from: The Franco-Prussian War: The German Invasion of France 1870-1871 (Paperback)
Well written, well researched. It explains clearly the underlying culture clash between Prussia and France.
To understand the reason for the second World War which in turn flowed from the First World War, you must understand the Franco Prussian war. The effect it had on both parties, and why with their respective temperaments and views of the outcome, the re-match, which was the Great War, was inevitable.

I am working backwards. I am now reading John Keegan's 'The first world war' and wondering why the French and German people are so fearful and hostile. This has caused me to look at books about The Franco Prussian War. So your review is quite interesting. This must be my next study.
