Product description

World War I immediately evokes images of the trenches, where millions died for no territory or visible gain. Yet the first months of the war were utterly differentfull of advances and retreats, tactical maneuvering, and significant gains and losses. In Catastrophe 1914, Max Hastings re-creates this dramatic year. His vivid accounts of battles and frank assessments of wartime leaders show why it was inevitable that this first war among modern industrial nations could not produce a decisive victory. Throughout we encounter all walks of lifefrom high officials to average soldiers to civiliansgiving us a vivid portrait of a war that would change everything.
