Some of the most ardent and eloquent opponents of the conflict ended up supporting their governments. Most felt that the war would last only months. What followed was, of course, the worst conflict man had seen. Barbara Tuchman's history of the first three months of the war is an excellent historical introduction, dealing with a forgotten part of the conflict - the war of manouevre that the European powers engaged in before beginning trench warfare that has become synonymous with the Great War. This Abacus reissue of the bestselling THE GUNS OF AUGUST is a brilliant military history, a thrilling narrative that shows the leaders, the policitians, and the generals - ordinary men who led their countries into and extraordinary war and were prepared to sacrifice their fellow countrymen.Hide synopsis

"Barbara Tuchman's great epic is the stunning masterpiece of WWI. Here are the unforgettable portraits of an era-and the disasters of leadership. Here is the big picture of war-the full shocking drama of August, 1914, an incredible month of bloody battles that changed the course of the world."
The book is a great histroy book however the author gets bogged down with too mush information of every general in the book. A shorter version of their bios would be better. The book is a long and tedious read but the information is good.
The mistakes and the arrogance of allies and Germans alike are portrayed graphically in Ms Tuchman's review of the 1st month of Word War 1, the war that was to last 40 days.
