Military historian Max Hastings presents a history of the first year of World War I in his book Catastrophe 1914: Europe Goes to War. He examines the diplomatic failings that led to the onset of war and recalls the early battles, from the loss of 27,000 French soldiers in a single day, August 22, 1914, to the British efforts against the Germans at the battle of Ypres.
