BORN TODAY: in Karlesruhe, Germany – Walter Seelmann-Eggebert, radio chemist.



Western Front: British General Sir Horace Smith-Dorrien has now been presented with so much evidence of German plans to use asphyxiating gas as soon as the wind direction is right that he confides to his diary: “The details given are so voluminous and exact that I am sure they are untrue” . [Burg & Purcell].

Eastern Front: The German High Command issues orders to transfer eight divisions of the German Army from the Western Front to the Carpathian Mountains on the Eastern front. [Burg & Purcell].
