Germany was at fault for WWI
Dr Annika Mombauer
Germany saw a perfect opportunity for Austria-Hungary to invade Serbia and encouraged it
Germany started the Balkan War by urging Austria-Hungary to invade Serbia
Sir Max Hastings
He believes that Germany had the power to stop the war in the first place by withdrawing the "blank cheque"
I think that Germany could have single-handedly halted the whole war. The whole reason this happened was because they were greedy rather than being observant of the overall well-being of the neighboring countries.
The war was caused by immature decisions from Berlins' government
World War 1 was inevitable
The war was unavoidable becuase it was two nations that became more and more suspicious of one another
Problems between countries were not able to be settled by negotiation or diplomacy
He believed that there should not be a total blame placed on a certain country, Joll says that the state of mind of each nation's leaders was completely messed up to have a war in the first place
Britain was at fault for WWI
If Britain stood aside in 1914 and didnt involve themselves, it would not have become a big war
Britain being in talks with Russia just gave Germany more reason to attack first and suspect a war
