The war was not yet declared. Poincaré and the battleship "France" arrived in France the 28th or 29th july 1914. Only Austria had, at that moment, declared war to Servia. France and Germany were not yet in war. Germany only declared war to Frence the 3th August, if I'm not in mistake. So the "France" could'nt escape the german ships, because there was not war. Please confirm the matter. My excuses for my bad english,Jorge, 29 April 2009 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 12:14, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
