"Scare-Mongerings" from the Daily Mail 1896-1914 : The paper that foretold the war

£50.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Paperback. Brown paper book, rips and tears to cover and spine. Paper is very fragile to touch. Pages are browned. Despite the damage to the book this is very hard to find online at all.

Published by Associated newspapers, undated circa 1914.


From the book:

This collection of extracts traces the beginning of Prussian hostility to the British Empire from 1864, pointing out how it was accentuated by e
England's neutrality in 1870, and by her attitude in 1875. The book is of value as showing the great efforts made by successive british Governments to avoid conflict with Germany. Above all, it is a record of unremitting newspaper effort, in the face of intense hostility, to urge that the British Navy and Army should be kept in a condition to meet the present crisis. Particularly interesting are the account of German spy work in England, and the speeches and writings of pro-German public men and journalists, who were either personally hypnotised by the Kaiser or grossly deficient in prevision. The work contains a good deal of forgotten writings by the late Sir Charles Dilke, Mr W.T.Stead, and Mr G.W. Steevens, as also by Lord Roberts, Admiral Mahan, Mr A.J. Balfour, Mr Winston Churchill, Professor Hans Delbruck, Mr H.G. Wells, Mr Lovat Fraser, Mr Robert Blatchford, Mr Austen Harrison, his distinguished father, Mr frederic Harrison, and many others, and is, in fact, a record of Anglo-German relations for the last eighteen years. ~Twells Brex
