Description

The Proud Tower, "the Pulitzer Prize-winning "The Guns of August, " and "The Zimmerman Telegram" comprise Barbara W. Tuchman s classic histories of the First World War era During the fateful quarter century leading up to World War I, the climax of a century of rapid, unprecedented change, a privileged few enjoyed Olympian luxury as the underclass was heaving in its pain, its power, and its hate. In "The Proud Tower, "Barbara W. Tuchman brings the era to vivid life: the decline of the Edwardian aristocracy; the Anarchists of Europe and America; Germany and its self-depicted hero, Richard Strauss; Diaghilev s Russian ballet and Stravinsky s music; the Dreyfus Affair; the Peace Conferences in The Hague; and the enthusiasm and tragedy of Socialism, epitomized by the assassination of Jean Jaures on the night the Great War began and an epoch came to a close. Praise for "The Proud Tower" Barbara W. Tuchman s] Pulitzer Prize winning"The Guns of August"was an expert evocation of the first spasm of the 1914 1918 war. She brings the same narrative gifts and panoramic camera eye to her portrait of the antebellum world. "Newsweek"" A rare combination of impeccable scholarship and literary polish . . . It would be impossible to read "The Proud Tower "without pleasure and admiration. "The New York Times" An exquisitely written and thoroughly engrossing work . . . The author s knowledge and skill are so impressive that they whet the appetite for more. "Chicago Tribune" Tuchman] tells her story with cool wit and warm understanding. "Time"
