    Presumably you want three different viewpoints...

    'It was Germany's fault' - Fritz Fischer or any of his followers. You don't necessarily need the original books, they are well summarised elsewhere.

    'It was Russia's fault' - Sean McMeekin, July 1914: Countdown to War.

    'It wasn't really anyone's fault' - Chrstopher Clark, Sleepwalkers.
