1.8.11

The mobilization of August 1914

It was on this day August 1st, 1914 that the aerie upon which the eagles perched started to fall.


This 2 minute, 27 second recording is Kaiser Wilhelm II announcing to the German Empire that mobilization has been ordered.

In Munich, Bavaria, a certain out of work, expatriot Austrian appears in this photo cheering with the crowd at this announcement.
