Preparing for the Great War

I am preparing to teach an online course on World War I – the Great War – fall semester 2014. Books, especially on the July Crisis, are coming fast and furious, so its no easy task. Thankfully, R.J.W Evans has reviewed six important new books in his essay, “The Greatest Catastrophe the World Has Seen,” published in the February 6 edition of the New York Review of Books. Having read the books in question, I can only agree with Evans’ assessment. Take a look for yourself.
