Today -100: August 24, 1918: Of criminal military systems, and u-boats


British Foreign Under-Secretary Lord Robert Cecil says Germany is totally unfit ever to have colonies, unlike, ahem. He also says a League of Nations can only succeed if there’s victory first and if Germany acknowledges “that her whole military system is criminal.”
