Barbara Tuchman's book. Very
good. Thumbs up BUT not a beginners book.
Seems like most of her books assume you know
something. I intend to review her other turn of the
century work (The Proud Tower) that I think is
terrible. It is not slow like A Distant Mirror.
These Guns of August volumes are cheap, readily
available and quick reading. I think a brand new is $6.50. Done on a macro scale.
I vote yes. However, Tuchman is part of the
Anglophile sources that gave many westerners their
view of the war through American and English eyes.
You do not get a real feel from the Central Power
