This is an excellent book on the first several months of WWI on the Eastern Front. The author does a pretty job job of summarizing the maneuvers of both sides from August through December 1914, and enlivens the account with some (mainly German) personal accounts of the campaigns. My main criticism is that the account is rather uneven, with great detail for some sections of the front and the hardly vaguest detail for others. I suspect, however, that this is a function of a lack of sources for certain sectors and perhaps the fact that little was going on there...
