1 July: So far German advice has indicated Austria-Hungary
Posted on June 29th, 1914 by admin
1 July: So far German advice has indicated Austria-Hungary should be cautious but Victor Naumann a well known German journalist calls on Hoyos and tells him in Berlin “the idea of a preventive war against Russia is regarded with less disfavour than a year ago”.
If the Kaiser is spoken to in the right way he will support Austria-Hungary even if it leads to war.
Austria-Hungary will be finished as a Great Power if she does not take advantage of the moment.
Naumann has no official status but he is known to have good contacts with Jagow and Stumm in Berlin and Tschirschky. [More]
