Catastrophe: Europe Goes To War: 1914/Max Hastings. Harper Collins Publishing. Hardcover. New: 12/09/2013. ISBN 0007398573 (RRP £30)

To mark the centenary of WWI, this book chronicles the calamity that befell Europe in 1914, arguing that Austria and Germany must accept principal blame for the outbreak and, against the ‘poets’ view’ that the war was not worth winning, contending that it was vital to the freedom of Europe that the Kaiser’s Germany was defeated. It also provides a narrative of the early battles and the brutal struggles in Serbia, East Prussia and Galicia, and offers answers to the huge and fascinating question “what happened to Europe in 1914?”
