Wilhelm

The melt-down of 1914

by Wilhelm on Oct 23, 2008

This is one of those books that you cannot put down once you have stated reading it. I recommend skipping the first chapters and returning to them later. Written just after the beginning of WW I it focusses on the causes and motives culminating in the war. Some events are minutely researched as their very sequence allow for deep insight into the 'why' it was bound to happen but also noting that a war was not the inevitable outcome of the unfolding events. The conclusion is not to exculpate individuals or states represented by them but rather to paint the 'larger picture' that is ultimately beyond the control of all. Written before the end of the struggle could be known and thus without the mendaciousness of later scribblers the study is of great interest today as we are facing a similar round in the evolution of civilisation. The role of individuals and their personal failings having a massive effect on events should be remembered when judging the current situation we are faced with today.
