A Great Read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 1914: Fight the Good Fight: Britain, the Army and the Coming of the First World War (Hardcover)
This is a highly readable book on the lead up to WW1 and events up to the race for the sea. Written by an ex-army officer, it deals less with the political and diplomatic side and more with the military side; the plans and preparations of the continental nations with their huge conscript armies, contrasted with the small British regular army designed for policing an empire. Ex regular soldiers will, I believe, find it particularly interesting and informative.
