    Excellent book

    Max Hastings book about the run up to and initial months of World War 1 makes for compelling reading. Particularly interesting is how Austria's wish to punish Serbia spiralled to total war. There are many anecdotes from people that give the book a human scale. The change from optimism to the realisation of what total war actually meant and the early realisation that the war would last for a number of years is very striking. An excellent if at times chilling read.

    Outstanding, witty and unbelievably sad.

    Hastings balances politics, military history and personal idiosyncratic aspects with factual chronological details very well indeed.

    Catastrophe: Europe goes to war in 1

    A well written and researched book the subject of which never ceases to astound me with the callous disregard of life. The consequence of the WW1 carnage still lingers today.
