Product description


Holger Herwig s deft handling of sources and elegant writing bring the complexities of the Central Powers to life for his readers. In doing so, he provides the best analysis of Germany and Austria-Hungary available anywhere. His work also allows us to see the war efforts of the Allies in sharper perspective. This new edition, like the first, is a masterful book that should be on the shelf of every student of the First World War. --Michael Neiberg, author of Dance of the Furies: Europe and the Outbreak of World War I (2011)

About the Author
