Summary, etc.:
Zelikow reveals one of the last great mysteries of the Great War: that it never should have lasted so long or cost so much. During a pivotal few months in the middle of the First World War, all sides--Germany, Britain, and America--faced no good military options and believed the war could be concluded. Zelikow describes how tantalizingly close some far-sighted statesmen came to ending the war, saving millions of lives, and avoiding the total war that dimmed hopes for a better world.
