Access this resource

An early appeal by Richard Davis, American war correspondent, to denounce neutrality and take an active role in the conflict on the side of the Triple Entente. Makes his case from German ‘crimes of aggression’.

‘I have not seen the letter addressed by President Wilson to the American people calling upon them to preserve toward this war the mental attitude of neutrals. But I have seen the war. And I feel sure had President Wilson seen my war he would not have written his letter. This is not a war against Germans, as we know Germans in America … It is a war, as Winston Churchill has pointed out, against the military aristocracy of Germany …’
