Towards the Flame Empire War and the End of Tsarist Russia

SUMMARY Towards the Flame Empire War and the End of Tsarist Russia READ µ Towards the Flame Empire War and the End of Tsarist Russia Dominic Lieven ☆ 0 READ The Russian decision to mobilize in July 1914 may have been the single most catastrophic choice of the modern era Some articulate thoughtful figures around the Tsar understood Russia's fragility and yet they were shouted down by those who were convinced that despite Germany's patent military superior. In this fascinating read author Dominic Lieven looks at the history of WWI from the perspective of Russia Indeed he suggests that WWI was essentially an Eastern European conflict one in which the initial confrontation between Austria and Russia led to defeat for both sides Although the author is careful to explain events in some depth so that you do not need to have any real background knowledge I would not really recommend this book as a good starting point However if you have an interest in either Russian history or the beginnings of WWI then you should enjoy this excellently researched book The scene is set with an initial look at Europe before the first world war a time when Empire mattered and nationalism became a force The four continental powers were France Russia Austria and Prussia and the relationships between these countries are explored in depth The author then discusses the Russian Empire and the many problems it faced Russia ruled over a sixth of the world s land surface and yet this vast land was essentially an agrarian empire It was in effect both a great power and a poor country weakened by internal problems and uncertainty This book looks at what led to the outbreak of war and the conseuences for Russia and Europe both during and after the conflict This really is a book you can immerse yourself in I have not read anything by this prize winning academic before but I look forward to exploring of his work as I found this an extremely rewarding read
