The Guns of August - Barbara W. Tuchman, Robert K. Massie Excellent narrative.

Still listening, but much, much better than I had expected -- The comparison (in her foreword to the new edition) with Thucydides is ridiculous, of course. And this is not an academic history based on archival research. But her instincts are good, imo -- and it is a clear, and well-paced narrative. Perfect for an audible.
