Help me learn new things in 2018 – World War I! (What should I read?)

I’m going to spend September learning about the history of World War I. You’ve already given me some great ideas. I want to post them here, so you can help me prioritize what to read. If you think I’m missing something, please tell me. I’m opening comments, or you can tweet me. I can probably do 4-5.

  1. To End All Wars: A Story of Loyalty and Rebellion, by Adam Hochschild
  2. Thunder at Twilight, by Frederic Morton
  3. Testament of Youth, by Vera Brittain
  4. The Guns of August, by Barbara Tuchman
  5. The Great War, by Peter Hart
  6. The Fall of the Ottomans, by Eugene Rogan
  7. A World at Arms, by Gerhard Weinberg

What do you all think? Any thoughts on the order?
