Morning: Grey sends Tyrrell
Posted on August 1st, 1914 by admin
Morning: Grey sends Tyrrell to talk to Lichnowsky and make an unexpected and extraordinary proposal. If France is neutral in a war between Russia and Germany, would Germany pledge not to attack France. The ambassador takes it upon himself to offer such a pledge.
Grey himself phones Lichnowsky and repeats the question. Grey proposes to use this information at the cabinet meeting later in the morning. Lichnowsky telegrams Berlin with this amazing development.
