Britain Enters the War

On August 4, 1914, the United Kingdom officially declared war on Germany. In London, Ambassador Walter Hines Page sent a telegram to the U.S. Department of State notifying them that he had “received at this moment, 1.40 a.m., August 5, a note from the Foreign Office dated August 4 informing me that a state of war exists between Great Britain and Germany.” 1 Page now represented a neutral government in the midst of a continent at war.
