Week 4 AssignmentHist-2005-2, World History: 1900-1945My name is Pvt. (INSERT YOUR NAME), 3rd Division of the Belgian Army. This is myaccount of what happened August 5-16, 1914 at the Forts of Liege. I was under thecommand of one General Leman. Our duty was to hold the forts as rumors that theGermans are planning to force their way through Belgium to attack France. News of the“assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophia on June 28th, 1914”spread quickly through the country and this was bringing tension between countries,everyone was pointing fingers at Serbia. (Chapter 7, Pg. 99)I joined the military in hopes of helping protect our country and families in case of apossible war. With the rush of posting us to the fort it seems to be heading in thatdirection, "...military considerations afforded diplomacy little time to reach a peacefulsettlement." (Chapter 7, Pg. 99)As we arrive at the Forts they are a sight to behold, notgoing to be the most pleasant living quarters but seeing that I am not sure how long Iwill be here, guess this is my new home, Hello Fort Boncelles.
