Just started reading Guns of August, quite amazed by her writing skills. Her description of the folly of Kaiser Wilhelm is quite amazing. Love the dialogues she reports so far. If anybody down for a group discussion, im up for it.
I would be up for it. I have been slowly working my way through that book over a number of years. I am to the point where combat in Belgium has basically ceased. I am like 40% through the book. I actually preferred her book In Search of Folly in which she analyzes mistakes that governments and institutions made in spite of evidence to the contrary. She looks at how the Catholic Church (with the Borgia papacy) brought on the Protestant Reformation, how the British provoked the American Revolution and how America got itself caught up in Vietnam.
