One hundred years ago
(1914-1918), all across Europe and the Near East, Europeans were slaughtering
each other in droves. It is said that in the first several minutes of WWI
fighting, 10,000 men died. It was carnage on a massive scale, killing tens of
millions and in the end throwing Europe—then experiencing a golden age—into
chaos and blood.
What were the real causes? Who is
to blame? Was it the bankers? Greedy Wall Street parasites? The global Zionist
network? Land-hungry royals? Anarchistic revolutionaries? The Ottomans? The
French? The Brits? The Germans? The Austrians? The Russians? The Serbs?
In this Special Centenary
WWI Issue of TBR, we explore all of this and more, including articles on German
attempts to strike the U.S. mainland with sabotage, the latest on the Lusitania
disaster, the Rothschilds’ Bolshevik assassins, the exploits of the U.S. 96th
Aero Squadron in France, the true toll of the war and an analysis of the Treaty
of Versailles—the vengeful diktat that many blame for causing the conditions
that spawned World War II.

How to Start a Bloody World War
By Ronald L. Ray
Who and/or what instigated the
near self-destruction of Europe in the height of its glory? How could this mass
slaughter called World War I have been allowed to take place? Was it the
bankers? Greed? Territorial ambitions? Religious conflict? Imperial hubris? Or
was it, in the end, mere stupidity? Assistant Editor Ronald Ray examines the
many interlocking events that occurred in the late 1800s and early 1900s that
led to the “war to end all wars,” as WWI was billed at the time.
The Attack That Outraged the
By Philip Rife
We now know the British liner
Lusitania was no mere civilian pleasure ship. Recent finds prove the ship was
carrying large quantities of war materiel to WWI Allied armies. But the real
questions are whether or not Winston Churchill actually hoped the Germans would
sink the Lusitania and what actions he took to ensure that the ship was
Austria’s Role in Starting WWI
By Dr. Matthew Raphael Johnson
At TBR, unlike our mainstream
“competition,” we take a pro-German stance on history. So when former
TBR editor Matthew Raphael Johnson, Ph.D. submitted this story explaining why
he believed Austria deserved the preponderance of blame for starting World War
I, there was initially some surprise. But he also gets his shots in on the
British as well.
Battling for the Turkish Straits
By Daniel W. Michaels
Since Russia first developed a
navy, this massive nation has been on a quest for warm water ports. Despite her
vast size, Russia is, for much of the year, landlocked, her ports jammed with
ice. This is why control of the Turkish Straits—leading from the Black Sea to
the Mediterranean—has been for centuries foremost on Russia’s list of national
The Men Behind Gavrilo Princip
By John Tiffany
When trying to assess the blame
for World War I, one must look closely at Serbia. It was, after all, a Serbian
who killed Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne.
But did Serbian leaders know of the plot in advance and did they or did they
not try to warn the Austrians of the foul plan in time to stop it? Assistant
Editor John Tiffany fills us in.
The Rothschilds and the Czars
By Stephen Goodson
The author, an expert in monetary
matters, takes a look at the financial situation in Russia prior to and during
World War I and explains why the ending of the Russian royal family and the
fomenting of constant unrest in Russia both worked toward the Rothschilds’ goal
of getting rid of the State Bank of the Russian empire for the benefit of their
private banking dynasty.
German Sabotage Attacks on
By Philip Rife
The Germans and Austrians,
knowing full well the “neutral” United States was arming the Allies during
World War I, conceived a plan to sabotage U.S. port facilities that were
engaged in such underhanded efforts on America’s East Coast. Here is a brief
synopsis of those efforts that, in the end, did more harm than good to the Axis
Adventures of U.S. Pilots in
By Marc Roland
In this article, TBR’s Marc
Roland tells the tale of the U.S. Army 96th Aero Squadron, a group of daring
flyboys who went by the name of the Red Devils. These intrepid young Americans
gave it everything they had—including their lives—to help the United States win
a war they had no part in starting.
Germany Stabbed in the Back
By Joaquin Bochaca
Prior to World War I, Germany had
become a haven for Jews across Europe fleeing persecution, real and imagined.
Then why did Germany’s Jewish population collectively stab their German benefactors
in the back during World War I?
The Disastrous Versailles
By John Wear
Everyone seems to agree on one
point regarding World War I: The treaty that Germany was forced to sign all but
guaranteed another major war would be fought in the near future. But what
exactly did the treaty say and why was it so onerous?
The Cost of World War I
By Dr. Harry Elmer Barnes
Would the world have been a
better place today had the United States remained strictly neutral in World War
I? Famed Revisionist historian and TBR’s namesake Harry Elmer Barnes explains.
