This is the seventh volume of the ‘War Books’ of The Daily Telegraph and presents an interesting perspective on the eve of The Great War: “Now we have upon us a war which must decide whether Germany can escape the doom which ever since nationality became a principle of civilization, has stricken down all powers of her faith, or whether the old and proven laws of national life and national honour are still endowed with the old inexorable sanction.” (p. 192)
