Describes the prevailing belief during the summer of 1914 that the war would be a short one and the gradual reevaluation as the world's first mechanized conflict became mired in trench warfare and battles without decisive victory. Also presents quotations from Hitler, De Gaulle, and Churchill which reveal the personal impact of World War I.
