The Kaiser : new research on Wilhelm II's role in imperial Germany by Asa Don Dickinson( )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 2,092 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a collection of innovative essays examining the role of Wilhelm II in imperial Germany, focusing in particular on the later years of the monarch's reign. The essays highlight the Kaiser's relationship with statesmen and rulers, at home and abroad; his role in international relations; the erosion of his power during the First World War; and his ultimate downfall in 1918. The book demonstrates the extent to which Wilhelm II was able to exercise 'personal rule', largely unopposed by the responsible government, and supported in his decision-making by his influential entourage. But it also shows that there was no lack of contemporary critics of Wilhelm and Wilhelmismus. The essays are based on the latest research and on a wide range of archival sources, and provide an up-to-date evaluation of the role and importance of this controversial monarch.

The origins of the First World War : controversies and consensus by Annika Mombauer( Book )

24 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 958 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Opening with an overview of the events that led to the outbreak of war in 1914, followed by an analysis highlighting the debate during and immediately after the war, the author also covers: the reactions to the Treaty of Versailles, both in Europe and in the USA; the new consensus following the Second World War; and the challenges posed to that new orthodoxy by Fritz Fischer and his theses. Mombauer brings the story up to the present with current views of the significance and meaning of the origins of the First World War."--Jacket
Helmuth von Moltke and the origins of the First World War by Annika Mombauer( Book )

25 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book takes specific issue with the common perception of Moltke as an ineffectual and reluctant military leader, remembered primarily for the defeat at the Battle of the Marne and his alleged adulteration of the Schlieffen Plan. It concludes that, on the contrary, he was both bellicose and ambitious, hoping for war 'the sooner the better' and playing a crucial role in the outbreak and early months of the First World War."--Jacket
Die Julikrise : Europas Weg in den Ersten Weltkrieg by Annika Mombauer( Book )

18 editions published in 2014 in German and Danish and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Warum führte das Attentat serbischer Nationalisten zum Ersten Weltkrieg? Ist Europa in den Krieg "hineingeschlittert", wie es der britische Premier Lloyd George einst formulierte? Oder lassen sich klare Verantwortlichkeiten benennen? Auf der Grundlage zeitgenössischer Quellen und langjähriger Forschungen erzählt Annika Mombauer die Geschichte der Julikrise - vom Attentat in Sarajewo am 28. Juni bis zur englischen Kriegserklärung an Deutschland am 4. August 1914. Dabei grenzt sie sich klar von neueren Tendenzen ab, die Verantwortung Österreich-Ungarns und des Deutschen Reiches für die Eskalation der Krise zu verwischen
