I was a bit put-off by the author's penchant for snappy write-offs of each character. But he does convey the chaos of chance and incompetence that consistently moved Europe in the worst possible direction. Very much written with the benefit of hindsight. Now superceded by Christopher Clark's Sleepwalkers.

1287. Awakening from History, by Edmond Taylor (2 Sept 1974) I had read this author's The Fall of the Dynasties on June 14, 1964. This book muses about his life: born in St. Louis in 1908, he went to Paris in 1928 and became a correspondent for the Chicago Tribune in 1930. He became anti-Fascist, pro-Loyalist Spain, did not get sacked by Col. McCormick till 1939. Some of this was interesting, but not much of the account after World War II. It had its moments, but so much of it was spent philosophizing that I got tired of it. Nor did I appreciate his morality, of which a few hints were given. Parts of the book were good, but much was not… (mere)

Taylor is an excellent historian (although he is another male author with a veritable harem of females doing the actual work), with his multi-lingual background in diplomatic European journalism compassing and explaining (1) the collapse of the dynasties which ruled Europe and (2) the outbreak of World War I.
