    I thought Barbara Tuchman s The Guns of August was great and I wanted to knowabout the four years that followed This is a detailed, comprehensive, yet easily accessible chronology of the war in its entirety Still, like The Guns of August, depressing as hell but informative the most unfortunate part is how the conflicts that started this war over a hundred years ago still largely exist Some of the countries are different, all of the players are different, but it is as if the human race I thought Barbara Tuchman s The Guns of August was great and I wanted to knowabout the four years that followed This is a detailed, comprehensive, yet easily accessible chronology of the war in its entirety Still, like The Guns of August, depressing as hell but informative the most unfortunate part is how the conflicts that started this war over a hundred years ago still largely exist Some of the countries are different, all of the players are different, but it is as if the human race never learns Highly recommend

    It s an impressive work, but I would skip the batallions numbers and details to favour astrategical view on the war However, it s amazing to see how much our contemporary problems were born a century ago It seems like that war has not ended yet.
