Daily Beast reviews The Sleepwalkers

World War I saw ‘European civilization shattered like a glittering chandelier fallen on a marble floor’, says Michael Bishop in his Daily Beast review of Christopher Clark’s The Sleepwalkers.

The reviewer adds that Clark, like many a historian before him, is left wondering how Europe slipped so rapidly into such a destructive conflict.

The author’s advantage is that, by focusing on the events of summer 1914, he can provide more insights than many into the causes of the conflict.
