      >they shall not grow old
      personally I find this phrase offensive as it designates them for death and to die in youth, rather than recognizing that they didn't grow old, or to cherish their memories.

      It sounds more like some rich cosmopolitan asshole who wants to kill "his countrymen"

        Are you retarded? It's a line from a poem that provides the exact sentiment that you seemingly prefer.

          I never liked that poem. They were young boys who were manipulated by the old, rich, and powerful and sent to their deaths or horribly mutilated.

    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

    In fifty years, when peace outshines
    Remembrance of the battle lines,
    Adventurous lads will sigh and cast
    Proud looks upon the plundered past.
    On summer morn or winter's night,
    Their hearts will kindle for the fight,
    Reading a snatch of soldier-song,
    Savage and jaunty, fierce and strong;
    And through the angry marching rhymes
    Of blind regret and haggard mirth,
    They'll envy us the dazzling times
    When sacrifice absolved our earth.

    Some ancient man with silver locks
    Will lift his weary face to say:
    'War was a fiend who stopped our clocks
    Although we met him grim and gay.'
    And then he'll speak of Haig's last drive,
    Marvelling that any came alive
    Out of the shambles that men built
    And smashed, to cleanse the world of guilt.
    But the boys, with grin and sidelong glance,
    Will think, 'Poor grandad's day is done.'
    And dream of lads who fought in France
    And lived in time to share the fun.

        If Germany won WW1 we would probably see an overall much better world.

        We would be behind in technology by a few decades but overall the world would be improved as the causes for WW2 which destroys Europe isn't there and we end up with a similar world war of Communists vs the West. Where they get purged and none of their ideology is accepted across the planet.

          Doubtful. The A-H Empire was on the road to dissolution either way, the Ottomans were in bad shape, a German victory would have probably prevented intervention into revolutionary era Russia allowing the Soviets to take full control sooner, France would be revanchist, and it'd locked in a cold war with the UK.

        British interests were not threatened enough to warrant intervention. Germany did not effectively threaten British colonies (until Britain declared war). Belgium was irrelevant for Britain. "Protecting Belgian neutrality" was the superficial reason given when the actual reason Britain entered the war was to prevent Germany from becoming a stronger continental power.

          That seems like a good reason. Yes Belgium was a good reason for the common people, but geopolitics of the time dictated Britian would NOT survive if one power was able to control a majority of Europe.

          This. It wasn't the only excuse but one of many to go to war. Germany pathetically tried to get them to sit it out but misread the room completely. They should never have built that fleet and run their mouth. The UK was waiting for a point to put Germany in their place and the Germans gave it to them on a silver platter.

          Sitting out and allowing Germany to possibly defeat France and Russia was a non-starter since the end result would have been German domination of the continent and eventually a second war to challenge to the UK's Naval supremacy. Further, when the war between UK and Germany came, then the UK would have no allies strong enough on the continent to contend. WW1 was kind of "now or never" to maintain the balance of power.

          Equally, if they sat it out and Russia/France won on their own, then they would have no power in the negotiations and would have left Britain with a powerful France to deal with and no allies on the continent.

            By the time the war broke out, Germany no longer threatened British naval interests (nor other military interests, for that matter). Germany had already fallen so far behind in the dreadnaught race that the two powers had effectively left the Thucydides trap. There was a real and warranted fear of war in the last decade of the 19th century and the first decade of the 20th century, but by the time the 10s rolled around, this fear had mostly faded when it became clear Germany could no longer keep up with British naval production. It wasn't even close.

            The argument the Britain had to intervene, "now or never", as you claim, is nothing more than French diplomatic PsyOps (that you fell for over 100 years later).

    Niall Ferguson's "The Pity of War" is the best book I've read about WWI. It's not about the individual battles, but rather deals with the true causes of the war on a macro perspective.

    tl;dr: Great Britain bears much of the blame for turning what could have been a limited, local war into a world war.

      Because WWI is the war they should have lost, and the US just had loans and credit with Britain.

      Why by the way was their exact strategy.

      Then the British cried and moaned that their treasure was used up in I & II. Wah.

      Would have been better to let the Brit & French Empires founder in the 1920s, the German broader Empire was over, they have to give back flanders and all that, but keep Alsace and Lorraine.

      The European Empires then begin to fall because of American credit? Nahhhh... that's not how that history completes.

      The Empires have another war over the dirty urchins of the Earth, Africa, Asia, and the like, and we straighten out the Kindergartners one way or the other.

      Better we make sure 2x+ that they ARE going to commit war suicide and they DO need Big Pappy Murrica to come and minister their shortcomings.

      So that's why the British lost their Empire, kept their finanicial estate and international banking, but now play 2nd to USA.

      France was allowed to run to her bedroom, slam the door, and weep, which is which '67 withdrawal from NATO. Which again works to America's interest in being that the French really can't pull out of a European defense agreement, but at last we don't have to audit their corrupt Froggie paperwork. Kek.

      Fuckin win after win. All US had to do was 'play it straight', and the UK got on the 'we'll play fair' game a few years too late. Everyone else including the Frogs and Krauts knows that if you can't get fair play out of USA, then you turn to UK, and if not them, then the French, now you're on the Darkside of 'honest' and maybe get your nuclear reactor plans accidentally mailed to NATO headquarters c/o: Neutrons Department.

          Yeah and I posted the Iowa class BBs on a weapons board, which are 'legal' BBs just like all the other 'legal' Western BBs which are literally the best warships of WWII hands down, even if others are bigger.

          I would rather be in a KGV in any circumstance whatsoever in WWII than a Yamato or even the Bismarck. I mean I like those boats and all, but the 'legal' example weapons all came out ahead.

          What the Axis powers did to America's 2nd Best legal battleship design was a dent that could have been made by a shiprecked and storm-tossed shipping container.

      Ferguson is like those fucking breadtube gays who make multi hour long documentaries about why the US was racist for dropping the bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, while completely ignoring the fact that it would've gone on Germany first had they not surrendered.

      Ferguson is similar. He goes on an on about how British diplomats were rude, brash and hated the Germans and were itching for a war, justifying his claim that Britiain was responsible, while completley ignoring the subtext that if France had violated the territorial integrity of Belgium then they would've gone to war with them instead. Britain entered the war on completely reasonable terms, that being that Germany was bullying smaller neutral nations in its borders and Britain has a responsibility to defend them. Ferguson uses tables upon tables of statistical data to back up his argument, while ignoring that plain truth. Good writer, shit thesis and a classic example of revisionism.

    The immediate Naval and colonial competition had only ceased in 1912-13. Public opinion was still heavily against Germany and the UK had warmed the public to French and Russian interests as a result. Although Naval supremacy alone did not dictate British involvement, the German competition to create a fleet-in-being to threaten the British Naval supremacy and challenge British interests in Africa created unnecessary friction before the war. This is indisputable.

    Ultimately, the British Foreign minister said it best: "Should the war come, and England stand aside, one of two things must happen. (a) Either Germany and Austria win, crush France and humiliate Russia. What will be the position of a friendless England? (b) Or France and Russia win. What would be their attitude towards England? What about India and the Mediterranean?"

    German simply didn't make a good ally for England, failed to realize how their actions were harming their future prospects in the event of a European war, and (as even Naill Ferguson pointed out) Germany alone was too weak an ally to provide an effective counterbalance.

    Germany itself caused the situation and left itself no help.

        Turned out to be smart. They played it perfectly. Italy, France, Germany, Russia, Austria, Turkey, even Serbia. All crippled by the war. Britain sustained the lowest percentage of casualties per capita outside of the USA. Almost all rivals managed to stomp one another while Britain was relatively unscathed

          By "relatively unscathed" you mean how they gradually lost their empire, took on unsustainable debt, lost the better part of a generation of young men, and set themselves up for a repeat of the same war two decades later?

          Sure, others got fucked worse but if that is your definition of "relatively unscathed" then, yes, they got out of it relatively unscathed.

    The Empire wasn't dissolved as a direct result of debt or WW1/WW2. The development autonomous communities and governance within the British Empire was well underway before the wars While the ultimate form of the Empire vs. Commonwealth was still under debate and might have been influenced by the wars, home rule for all major parts of the Empire was an eventuality.

    The debt and loss of life was much less severe than any other major participant than the USA.

    WW2, while a direct consequence of WW1, was not predictable, nor was it an inevitability. Britain didn't set itself up. Britain reacted rationally and correctly to both wars, neither of which they contributed to causing. It was Germany who set itself up for multiple defeats through poor diplomacy and lack of rational strategic direction.

      >The debt and loss of life was much less severe than any other major participant than the USA.

      Actually, Russia lost less soldiers as a percentage of population than Britain did. That's not really the central point in your argument, sure. But do note that Britain lost between 1.9 and 2.2% of its *entire* population in dead with another 3% wounded. Imagine if the United States would go to war tomorrow and see 6.6 million dead soldiers and another 10 million wounded - almost all in practically the same age bracket, mind you. It would correspond to every single male aged between 18 and 24 in the US either killed or wounded in action. Would the United States be "relatively unscathed" in this scenario?

      Furthermore, I am not arguing that Germany "dindu nuttin" and didn't deserve to lose. Certainly, Germany as well as primarily Russia and Austria-Hungary bears much of the blame for the continental war breaking out. I am, however, arguing that it was not in the British national interest to intervene and turn a continental war into a world war, given the enormous costs in manpower and capital (which were not unpredictable in advance).

        It depends on what you consider as a percentage of adult male population, if the British Empire is considered as a whole, less than Russia, if it is just the UK, then slightly more than Russia, but in that sense it is misleading because the UK deliberately used more of their UK population in combat hostilities because it was more logistically, politically, and economically beneficial to do so. Was India not part of the Empire in 1914? Canada? Australia?

        It also ignores the subsequent losses Russia suffered in 1918 during their civil war while WW1 was ongoing. It a bit misleading to compare 1914-1918 (November) UK losses versus 1914-1918 (March) Russian losses considering Russia was still fighting a civil war resulting from their involvement.

        It was a world war regardless of Britain's involvement. The following countries were involved before Britain joined: Germany, France, Russia, Austria-Hungary, Belgium, Serbia. Plus, areas that would include modern countries like Poland, Ukraine, Czechia, Slovakia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Finland, etc.. Likely Romania, Turkey, Bulgaria, Japan, and Italy would have joined regardless. Only the British Empire (UK, Canada, Australia, India, etc..) would have been kept apart and that doesn't make it anymore of a "world" war than a continental one.

        Britain, who should know best, decided what was in their national interests. I trust their judgment and their foresight. Germany's imperialistic demands outlined in 1917 showed what a possible Europe would look like had the British Empire not intervened and was infinitely worse for Britain than the outcome from their involvement.
