What a ghastly muddle they made of it! Unteachable from infancy to tomb—there is the first & main characteristic of mankind  



Political cartoon titled "Der Stänker" ("The Troublemaker") that was published in the German satirical magazine Kladderadatsch on 9 August 1914, depicting the nations of Europe sitting at a table.
(1st panel) The 
Central Powers hold their noses in distaste as tiny Serbia joins the table, while Russia reacts with joy.
(2) Serbia stabs Austria-Hungary, to everyone's apparent shock. Germany immediately offers support to Austria.
(3) Austria demands satisfaction from Serbia, while a relaxed Germany with hands in its pockets doesn't notice Russia and France come to agreement in the background.
(4) Austria manhandles Serbia, while an alarmed Germany looks to an angry Russia and presumably makes an agreement with the Ottoman Empire, and France tries to talk to Britain.
(5) A general brawl erupts with Germany and France immediately confronting each other, as Britain looks on in dismay. (The cartoon may have been drawn before the British declaration of war.) To the right, another combatant threatens to join from the darkness.from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/July_Crisis



Churchill reflects on the beginnings of the First World War while reading Lord Beaverbrook’s recently published book Politicians and the War 1914-1916.


Excerpt from Martin Gilbert’s ‘Churchill A Life’ (1991, Page 485)


As soon as he was able, he went to Scotland to recuperate on the Duke of Westminster’s Rosehall estate, where he read Beaverbrook’s book on the opening months of the war, about those who had been his friends and fellow-politicians in 1914. ‘Think of these people,’ he wrote to Beaverbrook, ‘decent, educated, the story of the past laid out before them. What to avoid, what to do etc. Patriotic, loyal, clean—trying their utmost. What a ghastly muddle they made of it! Unteachable from infancy to tomb—there is the first & main characteristic of mankind.’
