HIDDEN HISTORY: The Secret Origins of the First World War

This research shows that the true origins of the war are to be found not in Germany, but in England. In the late nineteenth century a secret society of immensely rich and powerful men was established in London with the stated aim of expanding the British Empire across the entire world. They deliberately caused the South African War of 1899–1902 in order to grab the Transvaal’s gold from the Boers. Their responsibility for that war, and the horror of British concentration camps in which 20,000 children died,3 have been airbrushed from official histories. The second stage of their global plan was the destruction of the rapidly developing industrial and economic competitor, Germany.

  • “…A carefully falsified history was created to conceal the fact that Britain, not Germany, was responsible for the war….At Versailles in 1919 Britain, France and the United States claimed that Germany had planned the war, deliberately started it, and rejected all Allied proposals for conciliation and mediation. Millions of documents were destroyed, concealed or falsified to justify that verdict….the Treaty of Versailles was the final crime whose harsh terms would ensure a second war”

The Secret Origins of the First World War – By Jim Macgregor & Gerry Docherty


The history of the First World War (1914–1918) is a deliberately concocted lie. Not the sacrifice, the heroism, the horrendous waste of life or the misery that followed. No, these were very real, but the truth of how it all began and how it was unnecessarily and deliberately prolonged beyond 1915 has…

  1. I”ve been fascinated by that period of history for a long time. This article substantiates and fleshes out some of my readings about the times and the players involved. In the US, which was brought into the war by J. P. Morgan, through his stooge Woodrow Wilson, supplied some of the cannon fodder for the Allies. Supposedly, Morgan was indoctrinated into the banking business by his father, Junius, through a London contact, Peabody, and ultimately specialized in lending to governments. When WWI was about to break out, Morgan, afraid for some of his European loans, engineered the creation of the Federal Reserve System in order to provide the avenue for the US to back his loans. This from “The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve,” by G. Edward Griffin.

    I’ve also read several biographies of Woodrow Wilson, including his role in the Treaty of Versailles and his support for the League of Nations, which the US never joined, and which later morphed into the United Nations.

    Finally, the book “Dead Wake,” by Larsen, is an historical account of the sinking of the Lusitania, which was later the US’ excuse for entering the war.

    But WWI was a under development for a long time prior to 1914. Britain’s Edward VII was a cousin, not only of the Russian tsar, but of Wilhelm II of Germany, so there was some internecine competition among Europe’s blue bloods. On the US side, Theodore Roosevelt, who was US president before Taft, entered the 1913 race as a third party candidate, from the Bull Moose Party, and split the vote so that Taft lost and Wilson won. Wilson had risen quickly from Princeton University president to governor of New Jersey and then the US presidency, probably through some of the political machines controlled by Tammany Hall and JP Morgan, who attended Wilson’s inauguration as president of Princeton in the 1890’s.

    The article doesn’t mention the Federal Reserve System, or the fact that Teddy Roosevelt and the Roosevelt family had long been involved in what was delicately called “the China trade,” meaning opium, and Teddy himself helped to monopolize the drug trade through the Harrison Narcotics Act in 1914.

    That Britain has been a major player in war and finance for hundreds of years is no surprise, but it’s nice that other people are seeing the bullies for what they are.

    • I’ve been really interested in this era, Katherine, ever since I read Caroll Quigley’s Tragedy and Hope. It was the first time I ever saw a Washington “insider” tell the truth about how the Washington political elite operates.

  2. Didn’t you post the full text of Caroll Quigley’s “Tragedy and Hope” awhile back? I started reading it but never finished it. It’s hard for me to read on-line, and, as I recall, the text was tiny, too.

    I have read references to Caroll Quigley other places.

    In the Now, I’m reading “The War that Ended Peace,” by Margaret MacMillan, published in 2013, about the decades that led up to WWI. It is a book I checked out of the library many months ago but never finished. I’ve missed it and checked it out again Monday. MacMillan is an Oxford professor (or was, in 2013) with a PhD in international history.

    The interconnections between the royal families in Europe–the so-called “blue bloods”–are intriguing. MacMillan suggests that competition between Great Britain and Germany ultimately led to the war. Edward VII of Britain, Nicholas II of Russia, and Wilhelm II of Germany were all cousins through Queen Victoria.
