From Shaw Bibliography: Introduction in Description. The German invasion of Belgium in the first week of the war is cited by English writers, historians, and politicians as the precipitating cause of England's entry into the war, and would be used thereafter to justify the moral authority of the Entente. Even Bertrand Russell would speak of the "wrong" inflicted on Belgium. (But cf. Robert Graves, "Good-bye to All That," rev. ed. [Garden City: Doubleday, 1957], Chapter XVII, esp. 182ff.)
