Baltic Sea: Poincaré, Viviani and Margerie

Posted on July 24th, 1914 by admin

Baltic Sea: Poincaré, Viviani and Margerie are at sea on the battleship France bound for Stockholm. Communications are difficult.

Through fragmentary messages they later learn of the Austro-Hungarian ultimatum and its contents.
