Sample text

La distinzione tra le due anime – quella moderata e l’altra (quella moderata è al governo nel momento in cui scoppia la guerra) – è una distinzione che viene ad accordarsi con le conclusioni della commissione d’inchiesta e dei documenti resi noti all’epoca, secondo cui la Germania non ebbe una responsabilità prevalente nello scoppio del conflitto. L’interpretazione mirante a una «equa suddivisione» delle responsabilità, è dunque in un’ottica tedesca originata da un’ala per così dire moderato-conservatrice, che salva la dignità del grande impero tedesco, sottraendolo all’accusa di guerrafondaio impenitente, provocatore di guerre.

Gaffe perché, evidentemente, quella parte dell’inchiesta che aveva accertato le responsabilità degli attentatori come provenienti da un ambiente serbo, era una parte indiscutibile. A quel punto si scatena una campagna di stampa fortissima, una campagna di stampa reciproca di giornali serbi e di giornali austriaci, con accuse brucianti e incontrollate, che sono di solito il preludio all’aggravarsi delle crisi internazionali e talvolta addirittura il preludio ad un vero e proprio passaggio alle armi.

Fermo restando che ci sono delle valutazioni che coinvolgono l’intero processo, e comportamenti che coinvolgono i governi nel loro complesso, tuttavia ci sono poi articolazioni interne che vanno segnalate. Come vedremo nel caso tedesco, queste articolazioni interne saranno all’origine addirittura di una contrapposizione storiografica piuttosto interessante. Abbiamo detto, e ripetuto, dell’oltranzismo del governo austriaco. Il governo austriaco in sostanza si muove nella prospettiva di uno scontro inevitabile: per cui fa esso stesso un’inchiesta ed è un’inchiesta sommaria; pone condizioni irricevibili per ottenere un rifiuto e procede nella convinzione, non del tutto infondata, che l’automatismo delle clausole della Triplice Alleanza avrebbe comportato lo schieramento della Germania al fianco dell’Austria – eventualmente anche l’Italia, che era legata al medesimo patto.
