EUROPE'S LAST SUMMER Who Started the Great War in 1914?

by | Read by Alan Sklar

History • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

To many observers, WWI erupted without real cause. During the years immediately before, Europe seemed to be drowsing on the fineries of the early twentieth century. Fromkin gathers many historical threads and shows that the war was planned and incited, primarily by imperial Germany, and that diplomacy was destined to fail. Individuals led nations, feet often dragging, into confrontation. It isn’t easy to inject life into dry historical narrative such as this, but Alan Sklar pulls it off. He reads compellingly, in a middle American bass-baritone with highs and lows of expression, nicely enhancing the text. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
