Today -100: April 2, 1915: Of separate peaces, German horse breeding, and visiting dictators

Fog of War (Rumors, Propaganda and Just Plain Bullshit) of the Day -100: Austria is begging to make a separate peace.

Woodrow Wilson will attempt to prevent Victoriano Huerta from returning to Mexico from the United States.
