Who started WW One?

From the tone of the Chancellors latest wires

Posted on July 30th, 1914 by admin

From the tone of the Chancellors latest wires the Austrians realise he really is trying to change Austrian policy. They should talk with the Russians and consider the latest proposal to “halt in Belgrade”.

They tell the Austrian ambassador in St Petersburg to explain the ultimatum to the Russians. This isn’t what the Russians want. They want to discuss changing it to make it acceptable to Serbia.

Another of the German Chancellor’s wires arrives. He warns “….we should be two against four great powers. We urgently recommend mediation….”.

In spite of the latest German recommendations the Austrian leadership agree that Serbia must meet the demands of the ultimatum in full and that Austria should proceed to general mobilisation.
