The Tragedy of War in the Twentieth CenturyDownloadable Audiobook - 2015
The ancient Greeks defined hubris as the worst sin a leader, or a nation, could commit. It was the mindset of supreme arrogance, where mortals in their folly would set themselves up against the gods. Its consequences were invariably terrible. Here, Alistair Horne analyses several engagements of the twentieth century which had consequences above and beyond the war itself, affecting the wider course of history and our own times.
