The Origins of the First World War: Controversies and Consensus - Making History (Paperback)Annika Mombauer (author)
- We can order this
The book focuses on the controversy itself, rather than the specific events leading up to the war. Emotive and emotional from the very beginning of the conflict, the debate and the passions aroused in response to such issues as the `war-guilt paragraph' of the treaty of Versailles, are set in the context of the times in which they were proposed. Similarly, the argument has been fuelled by concerns over the sacrifices that were made and the casualities that were suffered. Were they really justified?

"a valuable and essential analysis that should be studied with care by anyone trying to understand not just the war itself but much of twentieth century historical writing.' Contemporary Review
"Mombauer's book is to be welcomed... [she] manages to provide even the most seasoned scholar in this field with much else to think about."
