The Great War: Crown Prince Alexander of Serbia's Communiqué

Crown Prince Alexander II on the Centenary of the beginning of the Great War

It has been hundred years since the beginning of the war that is remembered in history as the Great War, as a first war that officially was called a World War that left tragic marks on our planet! The victorious parties named it as a Great war for civilization afterwards! The war began by the Austro Hungarian attack on Serbia. Serbia lived on, the Austro Hungarian Monarchy did not.

War of unequal, suffering of the innocent, feats of heroes and suffering of millions, struggle for survival and freedom and hunger for dominance and conquest have been around the embattled world during the long years from summer of 1914 till spring of 1919. War is a general term for a phenomenon consisting of hunger, diseases, destruction and death. The Serbian people and Serbia have known well the war as state of mind and a price that has to be paid for survival and life as free people should have lived in a society of free people run by the rule of law and justice! Our ancestors paid that great price, and we haven’t forgotten their sacrifice nor their example they left to us even after 100 years.

My great grandfather His Majesty King Peter I ruled Serbia in 1914. During First and Second Balkan War we liberated our lands that were enslaved for centuries and our people that dreamt of freedom during those times! Nobody in Serbia wanted a new war, nor welcomed it, but when it came it was welcomed as an uninvited guest should have been: with courage and determination!

We are witnessing today that new times and the new power balance could change history and relationships. Old alliances are disappearing, new ones are emerging and break away. Some all hatred is resurrect, some old passions are in work again, and some new interests feed themselves upon old ideas and fallacies. Nothing new and nothing we have not seen already. The idea of freedom, law and justice, although its old and outdated concepts, still have great value for us. We have not invented democracy, nor have we always implemented it and have been worth of it, but democracy has been the very essence of our society and our nation, and it still is.

We are Serbs, and together with other nations we share our homeland and our destiny with, we do not mark this anniversary by celebrating war and war victory, but by paying respect to victims, warriors, volunteers who fought for the right of a small country to exist freely among the nations. We celebrate their sacrifice and their conscience that guided them.  We celebrate their faith and commitment. We celebrate that we had the honour to be on the right side in a Great War for civilization!

The Great War: Commemorations for the Centennial

Several events across Europe have commemorated the centennial of the UK's decision to enter the Austro-Hungarian – Serbian conflict.

King George V's fateful decision on August 4, 1914, made what could have been a localized war become a global one. However, blame for the conflict really should not rest with him solely. By the time London declared a state of war with the German Empire, the Kaiser and the Tsar had already taken the fateful plunge. England entering the war, made any hope of avoiding the terrible conflict simply impossible.

The Great War: The Lie that Started WWI

Gavrilo Princip after his arrest

Prussia: Berlin Stadtschloß Rebuilt

From the Telegraph...

It was the building from which Kaiser Wilhelm II declared, to an adoring crowd, the beginning of the First World War. "I no longer recognise any parties or affiliations; today we are all German brothers and only German brothers," he proclaimed on that fateful day in August, 1914.
Since then the imperial palace on whose balcony the Kaiser stood 100 years ago this weekend has all but vanished - reduced to ruins by Allied bombing raids during the Second World War, and every last remnant demolished by East Germany's new communist rulers.

The Great War

From BBC:

What Winston Churchill once described as 'the old world in its sunset' had never been captured more brilliantly than at the funeral of King Edward VII in May 1910. This was the occasion of the celebrated Parade of Kings, when over 50 royal horsemen - a swaggering cavalcade of emperors, kings, crown princes, archdukes, grand dukes and princes - followed the slowly trundling coffin through the streets of London.
Republican envoys... were firmly relegated to the end of the procession.
Here was a moment of supreme monarchical glory. Republican envoys, no matter how powerful the countries they represented - even France or the United States - were firmly relegated to the end of the procession. Who, seeing this collection of royalty clattering by, could doubt that the institution of kingship was flourishing? Nothing could better have symbolised the extraordinary early 20th-century flowering of European monarchy than this spectacular parade.
Never since the days of the ancien régime of pre-revolutionary France had monarchy seemed so firmly entrenched. Instead of diminishing in number, royal thrones had multiplied, and the second half of the 19th and the early years of the 20th centuries had seen the setting up of half a dozen new monarchies, so by the year of Edward VII's death there were more monarchs in Europe than there had ever been. Without counting the rulers of the kingdoms and duchies that went to make up the German empire, there were 20 reigning monarchs - with a crowned sovereign in every country except France and Switzerland (and even France had restored the monarchy four times in the 19th century).
