Each day of July 1914 brought the world closer to unimaginable horror. McMeekin traces the fateful encounters and miscommunications between diplomats and sovereigns that shaped the world we know today, including a detailed account of the plot to kill archduke Ferdinand and a blistering epilogue that aims to make the case for ultimate blame.

Great for history and military buffs.
