    Historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Barbara Tuchman here brought to life again the people and events that led up to World War I. With attention to fascinating detail, and an intense knowledge of her subject and its characters, Ms. Tuchman reveals, for the first time, just how the war started, why, and why it could have been stopped but wasn't. A classic historical survey of a time and a people we all need to know more about, The Guns of August will not be forgotten.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I needed an abridged version.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Excellent research.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by John Lee?

    Yes. Narrator was good


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Over analysis. It may have been good at the time it was written. But it needs a synopsis now. If the focus was on what happened after, it would have held my attention more.
    It was a clear illustration of the need for war to make changes that can't be made otherwise.
    The tradgedy of the human condition is that we have a limited view of the consequences of our actions while we are living them. W.C. Jacobson


    Any additional comments?

    Barbara Tuchman writes well. Her analysis was good. I knew the outcome, which made it tedious to plow through. wCJ
