The Austro-Hungarian Red Book: the End of Part I, 28 June to 23 July 1914

The aim of this blog is to trace the development of the 1914 July Crisis that led to the outbreak of the First World War. To do this, each day I share a primary document from the summer of 1914.

The Austro-Hungarian Red Book, Part I

The Austro-Hungarian Red Book, Part I

Over the past few months, we have gone over Austro-Hungarian documents spanning the assassination of the Archduke Franz-Ferdinand and his wife at Sarajevo on 23 June, to the delivery of the Austro-Hungarian ultimatum to Serbia on 23 July 1914. To my knowledge, this is the first time these documents have been made available online in an accessible format. In a way, we have made history together. Thank you for your fidelity!

Nevertheless, the search for answers continues. Starting tomorrow, we will proceed to Part II of the 1919 Austro-Hungarian Red Book.
