WWI, mobilization and war. Here is what I consider to be a very interest take on the WWI situation: The Russians were the first to mobilize and started the cascade towards the first war, but according to this the German politicos did not want war, but Germany mistakenly went to war. This would dismiss the notion that the Germans invaded France to prevent a two front war. It was a mistake of history instead by the looks of it. So is it just me or does this totally reshape the way we look at the beginning of that war?
