Argumentos para ir a la guerra

France does not threaten our security. A German victory over France would threaten it irremediably. Even should the German Navy remain inactive, the occupation of Belgium and Northern France by German troops would strike a crushing blow at British security. We should then be obliged, alone and without allies, to bear the burden of keeping up a Fleet superior to that of Germany and of an Army proportionately strong. This burden would be ruinous.

Sine, empecé a leer "1914" de Max Hastings y, hasta ahora al menos, lo recomiendo con entusiasmo.

He leído sus anteriores libros sobre WWII y éste parece ser tan bueno como los otros.
