Umm no.
Everyone was the "bad guy" in WW1, everyone was bucking for a chance to kick the ever living heck out of someone else and the assassination of Franz Ferdinand gave them that chance.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Did you do any research on the story? I don't know much about it but if German solders spoke of it as well it would give the event more credence.

No, not at all. To be honest I had forgotten all about it till i saw the post. I do remember asking my dad about it after my grandfather had passed away and all he said was "that strange things happen sometimes"

They were just soldiers fighting on the opposing side.  That's all.  If anything, those Germans would have been just as likely to be saved by an angel as anyone else.

The original author intended it as fiction from the beginning. There was no deception on his part. The author of this article, however, is an idiot for not doing any research and making up this piece of crap.

I have seen the Angel of Mons story come up a few times over the years. As the eternal interested open minded observer I have seen nothing really compelling for one particular point of view and I think it is indeed just a great story, that may well, as other have suggested, been written as a moral boosting piece of allied propaganda, the whole , 'keep up the war effort, god is fighting on our side' angle perhaps, in a war that was ravaging the lives of countless families across Europe. This is an interesting investigation of the incident if you have time to read it ...

But as for it being a UFO bringing in re-enforcement's, alas on this occasion I think not. I am an open minded observer of Ufology, but I think this is something completely different, I think with all due respect, this is one of those cases where there is a mystery or legendary occurrence that has remained unexplained and someone comes along and twists it to fit Ufology and shoe horns it in there. I don't believe this is always the case, but this one seems to have been a victim of that i'm afraid.
