PostSubject: Interesting Quotation from WWI   Mon Aug 13, 2012 9:07 am

This popped up in the WWI Quotation part of "This Day in WWI" on our portal page. Thought it was worth sharing on the forum. A telegram sent from the Czar of Russia to his first cousin Kaiser Wilhelm proclaimed that Russia would be duty-bound to assist its neighbor and ally Serbia if any military action was taken against it. Wilhelm replies to the Czar with the below telegram. Incidentally, King George V of Britain was also a first cousin of Czar Nicholas and Kaiser Wilhelm...WWI was a family brawl...)

World War I Quote

Quote :
"I...share your wish that peace should be maintained. But...I cannot consider Austria's action against Serbia an 'ignoble' war. Austria knows by experience that Serbian promises on paper are wholly unreliable. I understand its action must be judged as trending to get full guarantee that the Serbian promises shall become real facts...I therefore suggest that it would be quite possible for Russia to remain a spectator of the Austro-Serbian conflict without involving Europe in the most horrible war she ever witnessed."
- Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany in a telegram to Czar Nicholas II of Russia on July 29, 1914
