The Great Crime of 1914: A Plea for Peace (Classic Reprint) Excerpt from The Great Crime of 1914: A Plea for Peace Soon after the war began I was obliged to undergo an operation. While waiting for the anaesthetic to be administered to me I was reading an account of the beginning of hostilities. The first thing I remember thereafter is a dull throbbing in my temples, which gradually grew into the noise of artillery and din of battle. I seemed to be a war correspondent standing on a hill outside of the city of Liege, near the road along which pitiful old men, women, and children were passing, seeking to escape from the high-explosive shells hurled by the Germans from across the River Meuse. The German artillery, however, was directed against the Liege forts. Repeated attempts had been made by the Germans to cross the river for the purpose of attacking them. The regiments of German soldiers were rushed forward over the hastily constructed pontoon bridge. Shells from the fort were hurled in their midst causing parts of human bodies to fly squirming in all directions, and fall into the bloody river which seemed choked with dead and wounded.
