With attention to fascinating detail, and an intense knowledge of her subject and its characters, Ms. Tuchman reveals, for the first time, just how the war started, why, and why it could have been stopped but wasn't. A classic historical survey of a time and a people we all need to know more about, The Guns of August will not be forgotten.

    This is one of the best books I have read on WWI. Since the fall of 2011 I have been reading books on WW1 and Barbara W. Tuchman book has been the most thorough and non-judgemental that I have read so far. She just lays out the facts starting from August 1 to the 31. She leaves it up to you to make whatever conclusions you wish. I was impressed with the amount of research Tuchman did in writing this book. She is a great historian. John Lee did a good job narrating the book. If you want to know about the start of WW1 this is by far the best book you could fine to provide the truth.
