Very hard to follow 18. Dezember 2014
Von Janet - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I don't think this book is worth buying. I had eagerly anticipated it expecting there to be something controversial but new. What I found was a study that was very difficult to follow and hard to read. The basic questions I had about the operation in Liège were not answered. I still think that a proper study of the German side in Liege is wanting.

I never felt that the purpose of the operation was laid out. The German chain of command which was at best convoluted was never clearly explained. The Great Gen. Staff developed the operation for the bold attack in planning prior to the war. The execution of that plan failed miserably. Zuber does a credible job detailing the tactical mismanagement of a too difficult night attack. He shows that the attack not only failed but that the night attack was ill-conceived from an execution perspective. He does this geographically following individual sectors of the city defense. He does not maintain consistency of chronology, therefore you are always jumping back and forth between different days as you rotate sectors. This is incredibly difficult to follow. I found myself constantly going back to figure out what day it was. He explains what time it was frequently but the actual date sometimes was elusive. The maps are so poor that they really do not help much.

There is the Zuber bias towards the Germans. Sometimes this is difficult to swallow but you just come to expect it. He does a bit better in this book explaining some of the training issues as the initial brigades deployed in "peacetime strength". However, he does not trace the training of those brigades back to the doctrinal leaning of the trainers. Were these brigades trained by reformers or traditionalists? Zuber details well that the commanders found out about their mission very late in the game. What he does not do is draw the logical conclusion – a lack of rehearsal and training for the mission. He explains that the night attack was extremely complex, difficult or impossible but he does not jump into why they did it that way. He instead blames Moltke vehemently. Emmich was responsible for the execution. In between those two there was the second army commander Bülow.

In all very difficult to follow. Relies heavily on regimental histories. These seem to be taken at face value without any critical conclusion drawn except to support his thesis about artillery. I bought it but would not recommend it.

A Siege Story Worth Reading 5. Dezember 2014
Von Dr Y - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Zuber is as tough act to review. His research is meticulous; his depth of knowledge astounding. His writing can be a bit tedious, swamping the reader with details. It can be tough going. But he has attacked a topic that demands attention and this work adds to the growing deluge of excellent books being published during the 100 year World War I anniversary. Alas the maps, while very informative and correct, are all in a black and white format that is at times muddy and indecipherable. I would have gladly paid more for a book with color maps. And some more photos too to break up the text. One picture in the book is so dark it is almost hard to tell what the thing is. Perhaps this got rushed to print before the Guns of August slipped into the Christmas Truce, the siege of Liege all but forgotten. At least we have Zuber's text to remind us of all that happened near that famous city in 1914. A must have for any World War I collection.

There are some interesting facts presented but overall I give this book a poor rating. The maps are poorly done 19. Dezember 2014
Von Brian Gueck - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Extremely difficult to follow with any coherent understanding. There are some interesting facts presented but overall I give this book a poor rating. The maps are poorly done. Quite hard to understand and show nothing of attack or defensive lines of movement. Seems like this was a rough first draft that was not smoothed out in the slightest. Too many unit letter/number designations that were numbing. Sorry I purchased this book.
