Описание: This book explores the influence of Helmuth von Moltke, Germany’s Chief of the General Staff between 1906 and 1914. Based largely on previously unknown primary sources, it analyses the General Staff’s role in military decision-making and Moltke’s relationship with Kaiser Wilhelm II, as well as the genesis of the Schlieffen Plan and Germany’s military and political reactions to the many pre-war crises. Moltke’s influence on Germany’s political decision-making was decisive, helping to foster an increasingly confrontational mood. The book takes specific issue with the common perception of Moltke as an ineffectual and reluctant military leader, remembered primarily for the defeat at the Battle of the Marne and his alleged adulteration of the Schlieffen Plan. It concludes that he was both bellicose and ambitious, hoping for war ‘the sooner the better’ and playing a crucial role in the outbreak and early months of the First World War.

Описание: A second edition of this leading introduction to the origins of the First World War and the pre-war international system. William Mulligan shows how the war was a far from inevitable outcome of international politics in the early twentieth century and suggests instead that there were powerful forces operating in favour of the maintenance of peace. He discusses key issues ranging from the military, public opinion, economics, diplomacy and geopolitics to relations between the great powers, the role of smaller states and the disintegrating empires. In this new edition, the author assesses the extensive new literature on the war's origins and the July Crisis as well as introducing new themes such as the relationship between economic interdependence and military planning. With well-structured chapters and an extensive bibliography, this is an essential classroom text which significantly revises our understanding of diplomacy, political culture, and economic history from 1870 to 1914.
