Part Two: The War’s Initiation and the Unfettered Submarine Warfare

Using Germany as an example, this book examines the complex relationship between Germany’s diplomatic initiatives and military strategy throughout World War I.

In it, the authors analyse how the Entente Powers’ resolute position and a cascade of misconceptions and miscommunications scuttled the peace initiatives spearheaded by Germany and President Wilson of the USA.

Also included in the text are the internal German discussions that preceded the United States’ entry into the war and the beginning of unrestricted submarine warfare.

The book finishes with an analysis of President Wilson’s involvement, claiming that the peace talks failed because he failed to grasp Germany’s critical interests.
