Early morning: Report from Bertie

Posted on July 31st, 1914 by admin

Early morning: Report from Bertie says Poincaré believes the preservation of peace is in the hands of Britain. If Britain announces it would come to the aid of France in a conflict between France and Germany, Germany would modify her attitude, and there would be no war.
Crowe minutes the report saying though Britain is refusing to give France and Russia unconditional support so as to discourage them from choosing war, if it becomes certain they cannot avoid war then “British interests require us to take our place beside them as Allies” and to act immediately.
