ThÃ© First World War Classic
There has not been written a better book on the first month of the First World War. Extremely well researched, well written and compelling. It took some time to start reading the book but after the first pages there was no stopping!
Although the book was first printed in 1962, it is still current an factual. Tuchman is capable of letting you feel the terror of this war and makes you aware that the German army was very close to winning this war in the first four weeks and that it was the decision of a German general that changed the whole course of it. But.. that is only my conclusion. by A.W. van Gelderunder review
