In this original interpretation of events leading up to World War II, the author argues that the war was a European civil war brought about not only by conflicts between states, but also by a breakdown within European society as a whole. The text analyzes this breakdown as it affected the European Armed Forces, and proposes that the military contributed to the problem by its failure to master new applications of technology - and its equally great failure to present civilian leaders with viable strategic plans. The author has also written "How War Came".
