  1. The Guns of August has been called the book that saved the world In the fall of 1962, looking at each other across the island of Cuba, the United States and the Soviet Union came nose to nose to pulling the trigger on a nuclear weapons war United States Air Force U2 pilot Major Rudolf Anderson, USAF was shot down and killed Our guest has been up there for over an hour, Russian Lieutenant General Stepan Grechko told a deputy I think we should give the order to shoot it down, as it is discovering [...]


  2. The Guns of August was and still is a very important landmark in our understanding of the First World War If you have little knowledge of WWI, this book would be an excellent place to begin your studies The Guns of August is focused on how the war began The war s beginning was not a simple thing Honestly, how could it be Great nation s do not casually embark upon wars that have the potential to cause death and destruction on continental scales.Tuchman s magnum plus starts by presenting a portrai [...]

  5. As other reviews, both on and elsewhere, have said, this is an amazing book.While it is very much non fiction and, in many ways, a history book , it is very well written, and very readable Some of the sentences paragraphs are incredibly well crafted, and you ll probably learn some new words along the way e.g tatterdemalion I loved that one.The level depth of research behind this book is phenomenal, and to think this 500 pages represents only the first month of a 4 yrs war.For me, it has done a f [...]
