This book was recommended to me by a historian to answer a specific question. The book did that.. A previous owners had underlined a lot of the text in pen that seriously reduced its value to me. Nevertheless for the price it was a good buy for me.

Unfortunately this book was written for the world of academia and not the average student of World War II.
While certain essays point to causes, others have more to do with the process of disciplines which consider the causes. The section of essays regarding the individual countries are informative, as was said in another opinion of this book, there was a failure to tie the essays into a whole view of the forces that caused the war. Unless you are into boring academic dribble don't bother with this book. I have no idea where they got that name for me.

Format: Paperback
As the book was nothing more than a series of individual essays, each concerning a specific cause for war such as the economy, the poor military intelligence available, the military, and the internal and external dealings of each future combattant, the book failed to serve as an overall review of the various competing views prevelent in today's litererture. As such it failed in it's mission as indicated by it's title.
