James Joll's study is an analysis of the historical forces at work in the Europe of 1914 and the very different way in which historians view them. Professor Joll has re-worked the text to take account of the research which has appeared in the seven years since the book first appeared.

Review: The Origins of the First World War (Origins of Modern Wars)

User Review  - Ida Hagen - Goodreads

A little heavy, but it is in the end a good book that enlighten a lot of the different sides and decisions that lead to the first world war. It would have been better with more paragraphs. The writer also have a tendency to repeat himself, but I suppose that makes it stick :p Read full review
