Review: THE PITY OF WAR by Niall Ferguson

Book Scorpion’s Lair recently read and reviewed The Pity of War by Niall Ferguson for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s an excerpt:

In The Pity of War, Niall Ferguson challenges popular theories about WWI, like the enthusiasm that is supposed to have greeted the outbreak of war or the allegedly superior armies of the British and French. He makes a good case against those theories and provides a lot of sources and in-depth research for his take on things. It was interesting to read such a different view of this war, a view that differs greatly from what is usually written about it.
