From the Paper:

"This study will provide a critical analysis of Barbara W. Tuchman's "The Guns of August". The study will include a view on the genre of the book; a summary of its contents, focusing on specific questions central to the author's portrayal of the major events and actors of World War I; and a personal opinion on the worth of the book.

Tuchman's book is an essentially historical study of World War I, but its power and lasting popularity are due to the excitement and immediacy the author brings to her work. She is meticulous with her footnoting, so that we have no doubt that she is in fact an historian and not a novelist, a "nonfiction novelist" or any other hybrid writer who includes fact and fiction in an inextricably intertwined conglomeration."
