Aline Shapiro asked:

a good book if taking a TRIP to europe?

David Bradshaw nope as the cover blurb states 'an opinionated account'
UK & France bear no blame - yikes - even tort law gets it better
James (JD) Dittes It depends on which sites you're planning to visit. Focused as it is on the first year of the war, it's primary set pieces are in Serbia, eastern Poland (Battle of Tannenberg) and around Mons, Belgium. A lot of the book is behind-the-scenes blundering by kings and potentates.

If you're visiting a specific place like Belgium, Paris or The Somme, I'm sure there would be better WW1-related books.
