Beatty, Jack  
The Lost History of 1914
Beatty offers a different view of World War I, testing the long-dominant assumption that it was inevitable. Chronicling largely forgotten events faced by each of the belligerent countries in the months before the war started in August, Beatty shows how any one of them - a possible military coup in Germany, an imminent civil war in Britain, the murder trial of the wife of the likely next premier of France - might have derailed the war or brought it to a different end.
