Over the next five decades, each came to think that the other simply had to be confronted - in Europe, in Africa, in the Pacific and at last in the deadly race to cover the North Sea with dreadnoughts. But why? Why did so many Britons come to see in Germany everything that was fearful and abhorrent? Why did so many Germans come to see any German who called dobbel fohltwhile playing Das Lawn Tennisas the dupe of a global conspiracy?

Packed with long-forgotten stories such as the murder of Queen Victoria's cook in Bohn, the disaster to Germany's ironclads under the White Cliffs, bizarre early colonial clashes and the precise, dark moment when Anglophobia begat modern anti-Semitism, this is the fifty-year saga of the tragic, and often tragicomic, delusions and miscalculations that led to the defining cataclysm of our times - the breaking of empires and the womb of horrors, the Great War.

Richly illustrated with the words and pictures that formed our ancestors' disastrous opinions, it will forever change the telling of this fateful tale.

This leaves a lot unsaid, and evidently it is also far too narrow to reduce the causes of the Great War to the relationship between the British and German Empires.

The Origins of the First World War

But it is also a very illustrative and entertaining way of telling a focused story. Clearly James Hawes did not aim to create a complete historical framework, he just refers to other events that touch upon his account, and leaves them there, as if saying, if you want to know more about the Boer War, go read another book.

I can imagine this being confusing to some readers. The essential thesis of Hawes is that the Great War was not some unfortunate accident of history, but the logical consequence of ideological and nationalistic antagonism. He does not absolve the politicians and generals from blame, but does see the war as something created out of popular opinion too. There are other books that cover the same period and roughly the same topic, of course.
