Excerpt from The Outbreak of the War of 1914-18: A Narrative Based Mainly on British Official Documents

Let us suppose-that the Emperor Francis Joseph had died in May 1914, when he was actually at the point of. Death, when the friends of the Archduke were actively bestir'ring themselves in the hourly expectation of their patron's accession to the throne, what would have been the course of affairs? There would have been no visit. To Sarajevo, no local assassination plot. The Archduke as Emperor would undoubtedly have made some attempt to introduce the trialist system, to replace the existing austro-hungarian dualism. There would have been at least an en deavour to solve the South Slav question by agreement. The pretext for the war that was actually used would never have existed. If Germany was really set on forcing on war in 1914, some wholly different set of pretexts would have had to be found. Would they have been such as to throw the whole direction of affairs entirely into the hands of the military party in Berlin, as was actually the case Or would the Archduke, as emperor-king, with the trialism experiment pending, and the succession question occupying his secret thoughts, have proved a ready tool for his German friend? The Balkan crisis of 1913 passed over without a general European war. Is it certain that 1914 would have seen one, if the Serajevo murder had not supervened From that deplorable event, therefore, this narrative takes its start. Misti It may be worth while touote that a good many documents appear at length in this narrative, or are quoted in part, which will not be found in the printed Collection of Diplomatic Documents relating to the Outbreak of the European. War, published with the authority of the Foreign Office in 1915. The compiler of the narrative has seen them, and been permitted to make excerpts fro-m them. He hasalso been allowed to ask for personal information of an explanatory sort from many of those whose names appear from time to time in the documents. The narrative itself has been submitted for comment and correction to several of the persons most concerned in its accuracy.
