Headline: "Deutschland im Krieg mit Rußland und Frankreich!"
Front page of Iowa Staats-Anzeiger on outbreak of World War I in Europe
World War I
On 6 August 1914, the Iowa Staats-Anzeiger devoted its top headline to "Germany at War with Russia and France!" The front page also reveals a completely German format, a break with former editor Joseph Eiboeck's practice of including English-language editorials on current issues as a regular feature of the paper.
