    For the WW I relative novice like me, this astonishingly detaile

    For the WW I relative novice like me, this astonishingly detailed, 584-page book (plus another 150 or so of notes) can be daunting at first. Just trying to keep track of the main characters (apart from the wild and wacky Wilhelm II or the allegedly dimwitted Nicholas II, apparently a nose-picker) was very difficult. However, immersing oneself in this book leaves one with a tapestry-like impression of the chaotic domestic politics of pre-WW I Europe, and, as another reviewer said, how the world bumbled into the war. For the history buff, I'd say this is overall a rewarding read.

    Those imbeciles who choose to play (at times) vulgar story games

    Those imbeciles who choose to play (at times) vulgar story games with other imbeciles should be permanently blocked from writing reviews. Those of us who earnestly want to know other reader responses find you boring and useless. Also, you skew the reader ratings for everyone. Barnes and Noble should take more care about what goes on this spac!

    Excellent study of the beginnings o WWI. Diplomancy failed and too eager did the world plunge into a war with horrific consequences they could not have foreseen as up until this point there had never been a war of this scope at any time in human history.
