    August 3, 1914: Germany declares war on France
    From the declaration of war from Austria to Serbia, on July 28, 1914, to the outbreak of the Great War, a look back at the 7 days during which Europe committed suicide.
    Can we still avoid the catastrophe? In Vienna, on Tuesday July 28, the old Emperor François-Joseph declared war. In this powder magazine that was Europe in 1914, he threw a torch: Greater Austria attacks Little Serbia. One is supported by Germany, the other by Russia. The fire can set the continent ablaze. However, all is not played, the dice still roll.

    For anyone of common sense, the Sarajevo bombing is not worth a European war. If Vienna is content to punish Belgrade to avenge the Archduke François-Ferdinand, we will stop there. The other powers will not be affected, either in their dignity or in their vital interests. European diplomacy has seen others. Since the turn of the century, it has contained three or four major crises. Peace keeps a chance.

    Many of them, among those responsible, think so. William II dreads a massacre; he considers the humiliation of Serbia sufficient and wants to move on. Viviani, President of the French Council, wants to reassure Germany; he ordered the French army to retreat ten kilometers to prevent any incident. Lord Gray, head of the Foreign Office, advocates a conference for four. The tsar himself hesitates, divided between imperial exaltation and the fear of a massacre.
