Tuchman’s classic histories of the First World War era During the fateful quarter century leading up to World War I, the climax of a century of rapid, unprecedented change, a privileged few enjoyed Olympian luxury as the underclass was “heaving in its pain, its power, and its hate.” In The Proud Tower, Barbara W.

The Guns of August Book Description :

'War pressed against every frontier. Suddenly dismayed, governments struggled and twisted to fend it off. It was no use . . .'
