PREFATORY NOTE.
· Chapters I., II. and III. are reprinted with
very slight alterations from articles which
appeared in the Westminster Gazette on Sep-
tember 11th, 12th and 13th, 1916. The sub-
I stance of Chapters IV. and V. appeared also
in the same paper on December 18th and
19th, 1916, and january 1st and 2nd, 1917,
I but considerable alterations and additions have
been made.
With the exception of the telegrams pub-
lished for the first time by the German Chan-
cellor in his speech of November, 1916, all
the documents referred to will be found in
" Collected Diplon1atic Documents Relating to
the Outbreak of the European War." For a
fuller treatment of those points not dealt
with in this book, I must refer my readers
to " The History of Twelve Days.”
