Austrians now have message from German Chief

Posted on July 31st, 1914 by admin

Austrians now have message from the German Chief of the General Staff urging Austrian general mobilisation. They note how it contradicts the messages from the Chancellor.

Austrians believe mediation would work against them. They are intent on destroying the Serbian army to avoid another problem arising in a few years time.

The Emperor signs the orders for general mobilisation. He sends a message to the Kaiser saying he is doing this because of Russian mobilisation. The latest mediation proposals come too late. Operations against Serbia cannot be interrupted.
