"Definitive new account of the catalytic events that led to the outbreak of war. Thomas Otte argues that neither martial culture nor the alliance system played a decisive role for much of the crisis. Instead he reveals the fatal flaws, failings, and miscalculations of those who led Europe into war"-- Provided by publisher.
