Issue Cover

All About History  |  Issue 54  


WHY BLAME THE KAISER?
World War I was one of the most devastating conflicts in human history. It is estimated that over eleven million soldiers were killed, wounded or went missing. On a single day in 1916, as the Battle of the Somme began in earnest, the British Army suffered 54,470 casualties. This truly was a world war, with the conflict spilling out from Europe into Asia and Africa. But who was responsible for this tragedy of epic proportions? Many blame the entire imperial system itself, a regime that allowed a select band of elites to govern in their own self-interest with little regard for ordinary people. But in recent years this theory has been re-evaluated so the finger could point to Kaiser Wilhelm II. the paranoid, arrogant and self-aggrandising emperor of Germany, as the man who bears overall responsibility for the start of this conflict in the summer of 1914.

First published in 2013, All About History is the UK’s biggest independent history magazine. Bringing together the drama of human history with expert analysis, incredible illustrations and captivating storytelling. It’s the ideal read for anyone who loves learning about history.


Each issue captures the imagination with six regular features including:


Ancient Empires: From Ancient Egypt and the Macedonian Empire to the Jin Dynasty and the Roman Empire, discover the amazing stories behind the truths and myths that have defined our world.


World Wars: Uncover some of the most tragic and heroic true stories from the trenches of World War I, and the battlegrounds of World War II.


Inside History: Incredible insights into historic buildings and machinery that changed the way we live forever.


Heroes and Villains: Learn what made the most influential figures in history tick, from kings and queens to inventors and explorers.


Timeline: Follow the most significant dates in history in chronological order, tracking the rise and fall of empires and individuals alike.


What if: Leading historians debate how the world may have looked today if some of the key historical events had turned on their head. What would have happened if Germany had won the Battle of Britain? What if the gunpowder plot had succeeded? What if the Vikings had colonised North America?
