Isabel Hull to Speak on WWI and International Law, 9/24 at 4PM KE 319

“Just for a word — “neutrality,” a word which in war time had so often been disregarded — just for a scrap of paper Great Britain was going to make war on a kindred nation who desired nothing better than to be friends with her.”

– Theobald Bethmann Hollweg, German Chancellor

“Have any of you any of those neat little Treasury £1 notes? If you have, burn them; they are only scraps of paper. What are they made of? Rags. What are they worth? The whole credit of the British Empire.”

– David Lloyd George, Chancellor of the Exchequer
