9780199665389: The Month that Changed the World: July 1914
Críticas:

This gripping account of the descent into the abyss of war makes clear just how little the conflict was premeditated, preordained, or predictable. ( Military History Monthly)

[A] very readable day-by-day analysis of the crisis ( Duncan Kelly, Financial Times)

During the centenary year an avalanche of books on the First World War's origins will descend upon the public. Gordon Martel's will stand out among them for its authoritative judgements and for its no-nonsense focus on the decisions that caused the conflict's outbreak. It offers a detailed but compelling narrative of the July 1914 crisis, based overwhelmingly on first-hand and contemporary evidence. ( David Stevenson, author of 1914-1918: the History of the First World War)

Descripción Oxford. 1 Cloth(s), 2014. hard. Estado de conservación: New. On June 28, 1914, the Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated in the Balkans; five fateful weeks later, Europe was convulsed by war. It sounds like simple cause and effect, and yet a century on, historians still debate who was to blame for the cataclysm. Here Gordon Martel draws upon diplomatic, military, and political records, to investigate the situation afresh, with the aim of establishing just how the catastrophe really unfurled. Martel devotes a chapter to each day of the "July Crisis," which sent diplomats scrambling to avert—or in some cases, encourage—the outbreak of war. 484. Nº de ref. de la librería 63938

Descripción Oxford University Press, U.S.A., 2014. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: New. 1st Edition. On 28 June 1914 the Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated at Sarajevo. Five fateful weeks later the Great Powers of Europe were at war. Much time and ink has been spent over the last century trying to identify the "guilty" person or state responsible, or attempting to explain that no one was to blame, that "underlying" impersonal forces "inevitably" led to war in 1914. Unsatisfied with these explanations, Gordon Martel now goes back to the human dimension, to the contemporary diplomatic, military, and political records, in order to recount the twists and turns of the crisis afresh, with the aim of establishing just how the cataclysm was unleashed. What emerges is the story of a terrible, avoidable tragedy -- a mystery that can be solved only by retracing the steps taken by those who took the world down the road to war. With each passing day we see how the personalities of leading figures such as Kaiser Wilhelm II, the Emperor Franz Joseph, Tsar Nicholas II, Sir Edward Grey, and Raymond Poincare were central to the unfolding crisis, how their hopes and fears intersected as events unfolded, and how, in spite of increasing tensions and escalating fears, a peaceful resolution appeared to be within their grasp until the final moments. Devoting a chapter to each day of the infamous "July Crisis", this gripping account of the descent into the abyss of war makes clear just how little the conflict was, in fact, premeditated, preordained, or even predictable. Almost every day it seemed possible that the crisis could be settled as so many had been over the previous decade; almost every day a new initiative encouraged the hope that war could once again be avoided. Why was war not avoided this time? By recounting the thoughts and arguments of those responsible for making the decisions, readers can judge for themselves why peace failed and who was responsible for the failure. Oxford University Press, Hardcover, 2014 This is a BRAND NEW book. Nº de ref. de la librería 000069

With each passing day, we see how the personalities of leading figures such as Kaiser Wilhelm II, the Emperor Franz Joseph, Tsar Nicholas II, Sir Edward Grey, and Raymond Poincare were central to the unfolding crisis, how their hopes and fears intersected as events unfolded, and how each new decision produced a response that complicated or escalated matters to the point where they became almost impossible to contain. Devoting a chapter to each day of the infamous July Crisis , this gripping step by step account of the descent to war makes clear just how little the conflict was in fact premeditated, preordained, or even predictable. Almost every day it seemed possible that the crisis could be settled as so many had been over the previous decade; almost every day there was a new suggestion that gave statesmen hope that war could be avoided without abandoning vital interests. And yet, as the last month of peace ebbed away, the actions and reactions of the Great Powers disastrously escalated the situation. So much so that, by the beginning of August, what might have remained a minor Balkan problem had turned into the cataclysm of the First World War. Nº de ref. de la librería AOP9780199665389
