Resenhas

In this LOA volume, Barbara Tuchman's "The Proud Tower" & "The Guns of August" are contained here. History students studying the world leading up to the start of World War I will find Tuchman's work a solid understanding of how Europe failed to recognize the serious ramifications of ignoring warning signs that led to the horrific butchery of war.

The background includes a whirlwind of characters quickly described before moving on to the next blur of scenery. It took a while to get around to the details surrounding the Balfour declaration.
