Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

  1. Have just completed The Sleepwalkers, from a layman's viewpoint I can attest to this being a monumental work. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

    It traces the origins of the War from 1871 & then painstakingly & in great detail the book covers all possible perspectives and all the different countries that ultimately were involved in starting the war. In the closing chapters it clearly brings out how some of the main players were reluctant participants, but that the thread of alliances created over the previous decade dictated an inexorable path to war.
    It is well written & easy to read.
