    PDF/EPUB Christopher Clark à PDF/EPUB The Sleepwalkers Epub Ö à altobmen.pro sleepwalkers book, The Sleepwalkers eBookSimply one of the best books on the origins of the Great War Take it from someone who wrote his master thesis on the pre war military strategies of Belgium and along the way devoted too much time to the European dimension Christopher Clark’s summary of the transformation of Europe between 1879 and 1907 from non committed alliances into two military ‘blocs’ in two pages plus maps is a thing of beauty The author clearly belongs to the revisionist camp His identification of the hawks within the governments of the Great Powers correponds largely with the portraits in JHJ Andriessen’s “The Other Truth” Sir Edward Grey Conrad von Hötzendorf Raymond PoincaréetcHis treatment of the German Empire is the best example The dogmatic elevation of the Schlieffen plan goes hand in hand with a curiously passive attitude that is a far cry from the Teutonic bombast in the magistral writing of Barbara Tuchman E

Last week saw extensive media coverage of the various commemorations of Britain's declaration of war against Germany on August 4 1914 Naturally understandably inevitably those dignitaries invited to hold speeches on this occasion turned most of their attention to the human cost The sheer numbers are obscene beyond anyone's understanding or imagination The bare statistics are mere marks on a page; it takes other means to allow us to build a picture of the carnage There is this magnificent and moving installation in the dry moat of the Tower of London for example Entitled 'Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red' sic it plants a red ceramic poppy to represent each of the service personnel from the
