History • 32 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Richard Burnip, a British actor and historian, is ideally suited to narrate this long and informative book. His cadence makes the words come alive and conveys the meaning of the narrative much more completely than the printed page alone. His voice rises and falls when the text needs emphasis, for example, and his pace is ideal for comprehension. This book is a study of how the actions of various people around the globe—from leaders of nations, such as Kaiser Wilhelm II, to hapless officials in various ministries—coalesced to push the world into WWI. Attitudes, missteps, egos, blunders, fanaticism, racism, idealism—they’re all here. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2014]
