      Not one hundred percent on topic, but an interesting book nevertheless:
      The Russian Origins of the First World War, by Sean McKeekin.

      McKeekin is on the faculty of a Turkish university, so he is especially
      interested in the Gallipoli campaign, the Russian invasion of Persia
      (the troops landed at Pahlevi, just as the Polish refugees would in
      1942), and especially how the British and French were "bamboozled" (his
      word) by "clever Russian diplomats" into doing the heavy lifting for them.

      I've long been of the opinion that there wouldn't have been a Second
      World War if the Russians hadn't been so greedy. Now it seems that the
      same is true of the First!
