MacMillan, Margaret  
The War That Ended Peace: The Road to 1914
Historian MacMillan creates a portrait of the personalities and factors that pushed Europe over the brink into a catastrophic, world-changing conflagration, evoking the decisions made, and the economic, social, political, and human tensions that determined the lead-up to the war. Colonial rivalries; ethnic nationalism; Germany's rise to power; shifting alliances; and the belief in a Social Darwinism, that competition among nations was part of nature's rule, and that the strongest would rightfully emerge victorious: all exerted influence.
