Example text

Austrian Fear of Serb Empire is Real War Cause," wrote Harvard histor­ ian Albert Bushnell Hart in the Sunday New York Times on August 2, 1914. Two days later Germany launched its invasion of Belgium. Within weeks Hart's view would be eclipsed by the emergence, in Britain, France, Russia, and the United States, of the paradigm of full German responsibility for the Great War. Only now, close to a century later, is that paradigm in the process of erosion, though some historians in the 1920s sought to challenge its prominence.

In 1914, Britain was more committed to peace than was any other power. On the German side, avoiding a war with Britain was a central 38 policy goal of both the kaiser and Chancellor Bethmann-Hollweg. International relations research in the 1980s on the cult of the offensive also took Germany to be the key actor in bringing about the war, based largely on the consequences of the Schlieffen Plan and the assumptions upon which it was based. This was the case with Jack Snyder (who also 39 looks at Russia and France) and with Stephen Van Evera.

R. Palmer, A History of the Modern World, explained the war in terms that remain almost as valid today as they were in 1951. Palmer wrote: "The Germans, issuing their famous 'blank check,' encouraged the Austrians to be firm ... " And in 1962, Barbara Tuchman published the best-selling The Guns ofAugust, which reflected the German paradigm even as she completely ignored Eastern Europe and the Balkans in her account, limiting her discussion of the origins of the war to a single page. 4 Then, in 1961, Fritz Fischer published Griff nach der Weltmacht, becoming the first prominent German historian to affirm Germany's role in starting the war.
