Berlin: Bethmann has returned to Berlin

Posted on July 25th, 1914 by admin

Berlin: Bethmann has returned to Berlin from his country estate where he has been since the 5 July. He has been kept informed of the main international developments but has not been involved in day to day policy management.
He telegraphs the Kaiser, still on his North Sea cruise, that Britain’s “direct participation in a possible European war” does not appear likely. Later he also reports that at London and Paris “they are working energetically towards a localisation of the conflict”.
