    Reads like a novel

    Overall an easily readable, very informative book. Well-organized in that the Prologue concerning the assassination in Sarajevo on June 28th sets the stage, then the events of July are covered step-by-step and country-by-country, followed by an excellent summarizing Epilogue: Who Bears Responsibility. Occasionally the details can be overwhelming but there are helpful reference pages about the chronology and cast of characters. Given the fact that the consequences of World War I still affect today's world, this less well known history of the war's prelude in July 1914 is worth a read. However, if you want the shortest of summaries, I would say the bottom line is that the leaders of all the involved countries wanted war more than peace.

    Contains much helpful information on the effects of Franz Ferdin

    Contains much helpful information on the effects of Franz Ferdinand & Sophie's assassination. Written in a very easily readable style. I recommend this book as a "must read" to anyone interested in the history of World War I.
