Paul Ham describes his account of the year the First World War began as 'a straightforward narrative history that exhumes the causes of the war through the accumulation of events, actions and attitudes that led to it'. Ham explains the complexities of Europe as its leaders moved - deliberately in his view - towards war, sometimes stepping aside to consider the ways in which the world was ending for contemporaries, and finishing, with the year, in the trenches of the Western Front.
