This expose will make all previous histories of World War I obsolete . . . or gone with the wind....The Great War, or World War I, did not begin in Sarajevo on June 28, 1914. It began in South Africa on October 11, 1899, when spy Jan Smuts maneuvered the Boers into firing the first shot!

The Boer War or the Gold War was the first war of the bloody 20th century. It pitted the might of the British Empire against a small group of Dutch farmers. Boer is simply the Dutch word for FARMER.

Diamonds were discovered in South Africa in 1867 and gold in 1872. By 1897 South Africa was the world's largest exporter of gold.

The golden rule states that "whoever has the gold; makes the rules." The Boer War was all about the Bank of England gaining a complete monopoly on South African gold. In the 16th century, the brutal Spanish Empire committed a similar genocide to gain a monopoly on New World gold....Only Heroic Holland stood in the way of Spanish global hegemony!

Cecil Rhodes (1853–1902)
aged 37.

Oxford University graduate and gung-ho British imperialist Cecil Rhodes dominated South African politics for over 30 years.

He was prime minister of the Cape Colony from 1890 to 1896.

The former British colony of Rhodesia was named after him and Rhodes "scholars" are still named after him!

Rhodes was assisted by Anglo-German millionaire Alfred Beit who founded the De Beers and the British South Africa Company.


Alfred Beit (1853–1906).

Together with Rhodes, Beit coordinated the Jameson Raid, which was supposed to trigger an uprising among the British expatriate workers called Uitlanders.

Dr. Leander Starr Jameson

Dr. Leander Starr Jameson was Rhodes' close friend and personal physician.

Jameson led the botched Jameson Raid on December 29, 1895, which was supposed to precipitate a war with the Boers.

The raid turned into a complete failure, so Jameson was recalled to London and imprisoned in Holloway Prison.

Anglo-Irish James Percy Fitzpatrick was a co-conspirator with Jameson. He is credited with the creation of the two minute silence observed on Armistice Day.


James Percy Fitzpatrick

Jameson had very powerful friends in the government who obtained his release, and he was later rewarded with a knighthood and baronetcy. Crime does pay . . . sometimes!

Alfred Milner (18541925).

Anglo-German Alfred Milner replaced Rhodes as colonial administrator of the Cape Colony.

After the failed Jameson Raid, his job was to start a war with the Boers but make it look like they initiated hostilities.

Jan Smuts, close friend of Rhodes and Milner, had a "Damascus Road Experience," and converted from Anglophile to Anglophobe.

Born again as Rhodes' most vociferous critic, his violet anti-British agitation soon won him the friendship of President Paul Kruger.


Jan Smuts (18701931).

After he reinvented himself as an outspoken British Empire critic, Smuts was given a very important position in the government of Paul Kruger.

Paul Kruger (1825–1904).
President of the
South African Republic from '83 to 1900.

Amazingly, Paul Kruger welcomed Smuts the spy with open arms.

He even made him state attorney in Transvaal and his chief political adviser!

With Kruger's approval, Smuts wrote an ultimatum accusing the British government of breaking the 1884 London Convention.

Smuts with a group of Boer commandos.

The text of the ultimatum was received in London with derision, delight, and disdain:

Milner got his war. Both the British and Boer representatives rejected the terms they demanded of each other, and to Milner’s delight Kruger approved an ultimatum written by Smuts that accused Britain of breaking the 1884 London Convention, drawn up after the first Boer War of 1880–81. The text of the ultimatum was received in London with derision, delight and disdain. The Daily Telegraph didn't know whether to laugh or cry. The editorials rejoiced in the fact that ‘Mr Kruger has asked for war, and war he must have.’ It was all to be over by teatime. (Docherty & Macgregor, The Hidden History of WWI, p. 45).

The British were using the Maxim machine gun for the second time but they were no march for the mobile farmers armed with rifles.

Field Marshal Horatio Kitchener

Without a doubt the war was supposed to be "over by teatime."

Instead, the brave Boers, with only 40,000 men, were holding off over 500,000 British Empire soldiers

Unable to produce a quick victory, Kitchener of Khartoum was then called "Kitchener of Chaos."

Field Marshal Douglas Haig also served in South Africa and he later became known as the "Butcher of the Somme."


Field Marshal Douglas Hag

With the cream of the British Army turned into whipped cream, Lord Kitchener resorted to a diabolical scorched earth policy. That entailed burning all the Boer farm houses and interning the women and children in concentration camps!

Another dastardly outcome of the war was the creation of the myth of "war hero" Winston Churchill.

Churchill after his "escape" from
a prison camp in South Africa.

When Churchill arrived back in London he published an account of his "miraculous escape" from a Boer prison camp while visiting the latrine.

His amazing trek of over 250 miles from Pretoria to the Portuguese port of Lourenço Marques was compared to Homer's Odyssey.

Naturally, it was all FICTION because his close friend Smuts the spy arranged for his parole!


Cover of the book
Ian Hamilton's March by Winston Churchill.

From that time onward there was no looking back for the fake "war hero" Winston Churchill. When the brutal war of extermination finally ended, the Republic of South Africa was annexed to the British Empire.

The local population was so decimated that there was no one left to work the mines. As a result, thousands of laborers were imported from China on coffin ships.

Thousands of Chinese laborers were packed like sardines on
the SS Ikbal. Many died enroute and were thrown overboard!

Chinese laborers were promised PARADISE if they would work in the South African goldmines.

What they discovered was in reality HELL.

The first ship to set sail from China was the iron-hulled SS Ikbal, which left on June 30, 1904, with over 2,000 souls.


Thousands of Chinese laborers
were imported into South Africa.

By the time they arrived in Durban, 51 men had died and their bodies were thrown overboard:

On arrival, the men were tagged like pieces of meat and sealed in railroad cars for the 30-hour journey to the Transvaal. The garden cities were a myth. In reality, the Chinese workers lived in huge hutted compounds beside the mines with men in each small shack. They were unable to leave the compounds without a special permit and were fined for the slightest breach of the rules. The men worked ten hours a day for a wage of twenty-five cents. In addition, they had to work at lower rates for at least six months to pay back the costs of their passage from China. If any man failed to carry out his allocated work, he could be flogged and given a heavy fine. Although it was illegal, Milner approved the flogging of the Chinese workers as a necessary sanction, and the Conservative government backed him. It was an act of classic, old-fashioned imperialism. Many who could not keep up with the backbreaking toil were in perpetual debt to the mines. If still alive after three years, they were to be shipped back to China like spoiled returned goods. ‘These Chinese were brought over in the prime of life to be broken on the wheel within three years for the purpose of grinding out ever greater profits for the monsters of greed who owned them'. (Docherty & Macgregor, The Hidden History of WWI, p. 37).

The Chinese worshipped their ancestors and they definitely did not approve of burial at sea....Little did the Chinese laborers realize that the gold they were mining was going to finance Queen Victoria's favorite grandson!

After the Boer War debacle, the CID vowed never to use British Empire troops again!!

After their abysmal performance in the Boer War, the Committee for Imperial Defence vowed never to use British Empire soldiers again.

Britannia still misruled the waves, but the British military establishment decided to hire mercenaries to do all the real fighting in the future. It just so happened that the Prussians were more than willing to go to war for them . . . but the Boche demanded a big share of the South African gold.

"Dead Head" Kaiser Wilhelm was
financed by South African gold.

There was no armistice or truce for the Boers. It was unconditional surrender or genocide for the Dutch farmers!

As soon as the Chinese laborers starting producing gold, it was shipped to Queen Victoria's favorite grandson in Berlin. That gold facilitated the massive Second Reich military buildup!

At the same time, Edward the Caresser was ordered to go on a charm offensive and woo the French Republic into an alliance called the Entente Cordiale (Cordial Agreement).

King Edward VII (18411910).
Misruled from 1902 to 1910.

For the first time in 1000 years, Britannia embraced her neighbor and age-old rival. The king did all the diplomatic maneuvering and the Prime Minister and Cabinet was not consulted.

President Émile Loubet (18381929). President from 1899 to 1908.

While Edward was wooing the French he was provided with a special "sex-chair' in Paris where he could be serviced by 2 or 3 prostitutes simultaneously!

The Entente Cordial was signed by President Loubet and King Edward in April 1904. It contained secret agreements for British control of Egypt and French control of Morocco.

King Edward visited Russia in May 1908 and signed another top secret agreement with the fake Tsar Nicholas Dagmar.



King Edward and Nicholas
Dagmar at Reval, May 1908.

Naturally "Kaiser Bill" now felt encircled by Britain, France, and Russia so it was the excuse he needed to start the war! The First Moroccan Crisis in 1905 almost led to a war between France and Germany, and the Agadir Crisis in 1911 almost led to a war between the 2 countries.

That plotting by Albion was so perfidious that even Lucifer himself was jealous of the conspirators....Not all Britons embraced the top secret diplomacy of King Edward. As a "constitutional monarch" he was not even supposed to be involved in politics.

Henry Campbell-Bannerman (18361908).
Prime Minister from 1905 to 1908.

Henry Campbell-Bannerman was a Liberal Prime Minister who deplored his country's march to war.

The conspirators asked him to resign several times but he refused. The first victim of the poison cup was his beloved wife Sarah, who passed away in August 1906.

Her death devastated the Prime Minister, and he was finally sent to heaven on April 22, 1908.

He was succeeded by the bellicose Herbert Henry Asquith.


Herbert Henry Asquith (18521928).
Prime Minister from
1908 to Dec. 1916.

Henry Campbell-Bannerman was the only Prime Minister to die in 10 Downing Street. 10 Downing Street is named after Sir George Downing who was Oliver Cromwell's spymaster, and then served King Charles II after the Restoration.

The rapid Russian mobilization turned the war into a bloody stalemate!!

The proud Kaiser's boast was "lunch in Paris, and dinner in Saint Petersburg." The Kaiser had never read this verse from Saint Martin Luther's translation of the Holy Bible: "Let not him that girdeth on his armour boast like him that putteth it off" (I Kings 20:11).

General Paul von Rennenkampf

In August 1914, Nicholas Dagmar dispatched patriotic Russian general Paul von Rennenkampf to East Prussia.

In no time at all the General had the Prussians on the run and fleeing back to Berlin.

As a result, Germany had to withdraw 2 army corps and a cavalry division from France.

However, General Alexander Samsonov was a complete failure!


General Alexander Samsonov
(1859August 1914).

Here is a quote about that fateful incident by Winston Churchill....As usual, it is only half the TRUTH:

And at that culminating moment the Russian pressure began to produce substantial effects. Honour must ever be done to the Tsar and Russian nation for the noble ardour and loyalty with which they hurled themselves into the war. A purely Russian treatment of their military problem would have led the Russian armies into immediate withdrawal from their frontiers until the whole of their vast mobilization was completed. Instead of this, they added to a forward mobilization an impetuous advance not only against Austria but against Germany. The flower of the Russian Army was soon to be cut down in enormous battles in East Prussia. But the results of their invasion were gathered at the decisive point. The nerve of the German Headquarters failed. On August 25 two army corps and cavalry of the German right were withdrawn from France. On August 31 Lord Kitchener was able to telegraph to Sir John French "Thirty-two trains of German troops were yesterday reported moving from the western field to meet the Russians." (Churchill, The World Crisis 1911–1918, p. 147).

General Von Rennenkampf was not able to stop the Prussian juggernaut, so General Samsonov was supposed to support him. Samsonov turned out to be a complete failure, so General von Rennenkampf was denied the prize of entering Berlin and ending the war.

George Curzon (18591925)
engineered the Revolution.

George Curzon was Leader of the House of Lords from 1916 to 1925.

As a former Viceroy of India he had a special interest in the defeat of Orthodox Russia because both countries shared a contentious border with Afghanistan.

"Golddigger" George sent his first American wife, heiress Mary Victoria Leiter, to "Purgatory" because she failed to give him sons!

To prepare him for a future position as "Governor General of the Confederacy" he married Grace Elvina Hinds from Alabama.


Grace Elvina Curzon (1885–1958). Second wife of George Curzon.

In 1917, Lord Curzon married Grace Elvina Hinds from Alabama, and he fully expected to be appointed "Governor General of the Confederacy" when "Kaiser Bill" finally won the big one! Curzon's second daughter, Cynthia Blanche, was the first wife of British Fascist Sir Oswald Mosley.

It's easy to win a war if the generals on the other side are on your payroll....Likewise, it's easy to launch a Revolution if you control all the men and women at the top!

King George V and
Nicholas Dagmar.

Tsar Nicholas II was in reality the son of Tsarevich Nicholas who was sent to Orthodox heaven in 1865.

His mother was Viking Princess Dagmar of Denmark.

Dagmar's elder sister Alexandra was married to the Prince of Wales and future King Edward VII.

Sir George Buchanan coordinated the Russian Revolution from the British embassy in St. Petersburg.


Sir George Buchanan (1854–1924).

Russian amb. from 1910 to 1917.

Like Lord Lyons before the assassination of President Lincoln, he feigned an illness, and he left Russia just before his "Bolsheviks" seized power!

Under the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk vast areas of Russia were surrendered to the Second Reich. That territory included Poland, UKraine, and Crimea. That treaty facilitated the transfer of 1 million Boche from the East to the Western Front.

Edomite Leon Trosky (18791940).
Commissar for Military and Naval Affairs.

The Treaty of Brest-Litovsky, negotiated by Leon Trosky, ended hostilities between "Kaiser Bill" and the Bolsheviks.

All of UKraine and Crimea was ceded to the Germans.

After the armistice was signed 1 millions Boche began redeploying to the Western Front.

After they entered Paris they expected to return and finish off Russia for good!


Signing of the Brest-Litovsk Treaty on
December 15, 1917.

After the treaty was signed the Prussians were singing "Gott mitt uns" because they knew that nothing stood in their way to final victory!

The armistice cheated the New Jerusalem out of victory on November 11, 1918

The New Jerusalem was cheated out of victory on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.

General Erich Ludendorff

PIckelhaube Erich Ludendorff was in charge of the spring offensive in the West, codenamed Operation Michael.

Marshall Ferdinand Foch was in overall command of the Allies, but the dinosaur was old and tired.

After losing millions of men the French were also exhausted.

Field Marshall Douglas Haig commanded the British Army, but they were expected to run to their ships as soon as the Boche began firing.



Marshall Ferdinand Foch

General John J. Pershing was in charge of the American Expeditionary Force (AEF). The Doughboys arrived in France without arms and ammunition, especially their excellent Springfield rifles....All of their rifles, artillery, and tanks were supplied by the French and British.

General John Joseph Pershing

General John J. Pershing was under tremendous pressure to give his Doughboys to the British and French as target practice for the Boche.

He refused to be browbeaten so he created an American Army under his command.

It was his Doughboys, armed with rifles, that stopped the Boche at places like Belleau Woods, Château-Thierry, St. Mihiel, and the Argonne Forest.

Colonel George S. Patton in front
of a French Renault tank in 1918.

Amazingly, instead of invading Germany from the South through Metz, the Doughboys were ordered to advance through the heavily defended Argonne Forest. General Patton found himself in the very same situation in WWII. By September 1944 his Third Army was on the southern border of Germany and he expected to be in Berlin in a few weeks. Unfortunately, his supply of gas was diverted to "Field Marshall" Montgomery's failed Operation Market Garden.

In a matter of months, General Pershing accomplished miracles by organizing a completely green army and sending it into combat against the fanatical and highly experienced Prussians....WWI produced a fake "war hero" named Harry S. Truman.

Ted Marks Selective Service photo had
the name Captain Harry S. Truman.

The fighting was fierce on the Western Front as the Boche used Maxim machins guns, flamethrowers, and poison gas on the Doughboys.

During the Meuse-Argonne offensive, Doughboys reported seeing an artillery spotter with glasses named Captain Harry S. Truman.

That was Ted Marks aka Captain Harry S. Truman. The real Truman was back at Army HQ counting the casualties!


Ted Marks, aka Captain Truman, at
Camp Coetquidan, Brittany, July 1918

The real "war heroes" never came back because the fighting was unlike anything seen in any other war in history. Machine guns, snipers, artillery, flamethrowers, poison gas, rain, mud, cold, rats as big as cats, barbed wire, and Boche pilots dropping potato-masher grenades from overhead....Mentally, the survivors were permanently scarred for life!

Ferdinand the fossil signed the
Armistice on Nov. 11, 1918.

On November 11, 1918, the New Jerusalem was cheated out of a complete victory by the old and tired fossil Ferdinand Foch.

Foch was assisted by General Maxime Weygand who was the son of Empress Carlota and a Belgium officer in Mexico.

The only ones cheering were the Germans who realized that it was only a temporary truce!

Admiral Rosslyn Wemyss signed for the British Empire.


Admiral Rosslyn Wemyss

The conspirators in London knew that Queen Victoria had another grandson named Adolf Hitler who served in the trenches during the war. He would pick up the fallen pickelhaube and launch another world war just 21 years later!

Herbert Hoover (18741964) fed the
Boche from Belgium during the war.

Belgium is a vital part of the British Empire and it was occupied by the Germans during WWI.

Sly and cunning Herbert Hoover felt sorry for the "starving" Belgium children, so he founded an organization called the Commission for the Relief of Belgium (CRB).

Under the guise of a humanization organization, the CRB shipped millions of tons of food to Belgium, which kept the Boche well fed on the Western Front!


Führer Adolf Hitler (18891962).
Führer from 1933 to 1945.

Nurse Edith Cavell wrote letters from Belgium to her friends in Britain about the CRB feeding the Boche so she was silenced by a firing squad on October 12, 1915.

In April 1929, Hoover became President of the United States, and his cronies engineered the Wall St. crash of October 1929. The subsequent Great Depression led to the 1933 "dictatorship" of Franklin D. Roosevelt, and the dictatorship of Adolf Hitler in Germany.
