This concluding volume of a masterly work by one of England's leading historians discusses the diplomacy of Grey, Poincaré, Bethmann-Hollweg, Sazonov and Berchtold. It is noteworthy that among the ten men portrayed by Professor Gooch in his two volumes there are no Italians, due to the fact that Italy alone among the Great Powers has not published her prewar documents.
