In , Lichnowsky was appointed ambassador to the United Kingdom , in which post he served until the outbreak of war in Soon after his appointment, he filed a report on a conversation with Lord Haldane , British secretary of state for war. The report was said to have infuriated Kaiser Wilhelm II. During the July Crisis of , Lichnowsky was the only German diplomat who raised objections to Germany's efforts to provoke an Austro-Serbian war, arguing that Britain would intervene in a continental war.
On 25 July, he implored the German government to accept an offer of British mediation in the Austro-Serbian dispute. On 27 July, he followed with a cable arguing that Germany could not win a continental war.

A final cable on 29 July to the German Foreign Office stated simply "if war breaks out it will be the greatest catastrophe the world has ever seen.

The pamphlet mainly covers the period —, and occasionally back to Lichnowsky deplored the German alliance with Austria-Hungary though he owned land in Austria and had served as a diplomat in Vienna , feeling that it inevitably pulled German diplomacy into Balkan crises and tensions with Russia, without any compensating benefits to Germany with its new industries, trade and colonies.
The Kaiser had commented on 31 July about an encircling British diplomacy during the crisis: "For I no longer have any doubt that England, Russia and France have agreed among themselves, knowing that our treaty obligations compel us to support Austria-Hungary, to use the Austro-Serb conflict as a pretext for waging a war of annihilation against us.
