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.

Or

'It was the fault of the train timetables' - AJP Taylor, War By Timetable and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITt4G74a5kI

EDIT: A lecture given by Clark outlining his views is available on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6snYQFcyiyg
