Posted on July 5th, 1914 by admin

6 July: Berchtold has Szögyény’s telegram reporting his meeting with the Kaiser. He sees Conrad and asks what the Emperor has said. He tells Conrad the Kaiser has said “yes” but he must first have word from Bethmann.
He also notes that Tisza is against a war because he believes the Russians will attack. He suggests that Austria-Hungary starts with a test mobilisation but Conrad insists if there is to be mobilisation it must be total.
