The Month that Changed the World

July 1914 and WWI

Gordon Martel

  • A gripping, step by step account of the five fateful weeks in 1914 that led to the First World War
  • Investigates the twists and turns of the July Crisis afresh to show how the catastrophe really unfurled
  • Highlights how the personalities of the leading statesmen were central to the unfolding crisis
  • Makes clear how little the conflict was in fact premeditated, preordained, or even predictable
  • The story of a terrible, unnecessary tragedy, as the Great Powers escalated a Balkan problem into the cataclysm of general war
