    Paperback´ The Sleepwalkers Epub æ sleepwalkers ebok, The Sleepwalkers eBookWhile the dead are gone they're not gone While the dead don't speak they speak St PaulWhich begs the uestion what do they say to us Last week saw extensive media coverage of the various commemorations of Britain's declaration of war against Germany on August 4 1914 Naturally understandably inevitably those dignitaries invited to hold speeches on this occasion turned most of their attention to the human cost The sheer numbers are obscene beyond anyone's understanding or imagination The bare statistics are mere marks on a page; it takes other means to allow us to build a picture of the carnage There is this magnificent and moving installation in the dry moat of the Tower of London for example Entitled 'Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red' sic it plants a red ceramic poppy to represent each of the service personnel from the UK who died in the 14 18 888264 poppiesAnd that is just servicemen and women No civiliansAnd t

    Paperback´ The Sleepwalkers Epub æ sleepwalkers ebok, The Sleepwalkers eBook”The outbreak of war in 1914 is not an Agatha Christie drama at the end of which we will discover the culprit standing over a corpse in the conservatory with a smoking pistol”Christopher Clark’s choice of the first bit of the title The Sleepwalkers How Europe Went to War in 1914 may indeed be considered slightly awkward in that it suggests that those who were in charge in European governments at that time are not really to blame for the decisions they took but nevertheless Clark’s book itself is groundbreaking in its capacity of putting a big uestion mark behind any attempt at for whatever reasons playing the blame game I have some friends who derive the bulk of their knowledge from the feature pages of newspapers and who are further endowed with the remarkable and enviable – shall I say “skill” or is not “power” the better word – of knowing everything that is said in a book by having a glance at its title and naturally these friends are indignant at Clark
