This last 30 days remind anyone of Guns of August? By Tuchmann

With the Russian airline blown up in Egypt, the 6 attacks in Paris, the bombing in Tunisia and other parts to Turkey blowing up a Russian military jet. Does this remind anyone of Barbara Tuchmann’s Guns of August where everything rapidly spiraled out of control in Europe leading to WW1. I am not saying WW3 is coming but this month may be as important in terms of when everything changed essentially like that month this last 30 days being the historical pivot point.

I read the book in the 80s but Turkish stunt reminded of me of that book in which these linked but isolated incidents are spiraling. I do think we are closer to WW3 then anytime since Fall of Berlin Wall. Or am I overreacting.
