The German Chancellor and the Outbreak of War

Written in the midst of World War I, this historic book investigates the diplomatic origins of the war and looks at its immediate causes. While World War I still raged on, J. W. Headlam found the German leadership, with the Emperor in particular, as being responsible for the start of global war. In a fascinating and detailed analysis, Headlam makes coherent the tangled mess of diplomatic documents that proceeded the onset of war, making a clear case for German guilt and the relative innocence of the Allies in bringing about war in Europe.
