    Rather than searching for the 'origins' of the First World War in historians' theories, or asking who or what caused the conflict, Martel explores the reality in contemporary diplomatic, political and military records. Day-by-day through the July Crisis and the 'days of decision' (1-4 August), and with the focus on those responsible for making fateful choices, he tells the story of how Europe moved from the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand on 28 June to the declaration of war.
