Summary

This is a wide-ranging analysis of the historical forces at work in Europe during 1914, and the very different ways in which historians have subsequently attempted to understand them. The importance of the theme, the breadth and sympathy of James Joll's scholarship, and the clarity of his exposition, have all contributed to the spectacular success of the book since its first appearance in 1984.

Features

  • Entirely revised and updated by Gordon Martel to incorporate the latest scholarship in this area.
  • Provides fascinating insight into this much studied period.
