Chancellor addresses the Reichstag. He admits

Posted on August 4th, 1914 by admin

Chancellor addresses the Reichstag. He admits the invasions of Luxembourg and Belgium are breaches of international law but says “necessity knows no law”.

British ambassador tells German leaders unless Germany halts its invasion of Belgium the British government will do all in its power to uphold the neutrality of Belgium. He must have this assurance by midnight.

German Chancellor makes clear Germany will not agree to this. It is “intolerable” that when Germany is trying to save itself Britain “should fall upon them just for sake of the neutrality of Belgium”.
