That having been said - 3 big problems with 1914.
1. WTS used to say that there had never been such an optimistic, peaceful period immediately prior to 1914. (See Note 1). However, the handful of quotations used by WTS are not only cherry-picked, but taken out of context.
For example, Google https://www.google.com/search?q=what+led+up+to+ww1&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8
The one result worth a quick read ( http://www.infoplease.com/encyclopedia/history/world-war-i-causes.html#ixzz3aMOISOpB ) shows that " Prominent causes were the imperialistic, territorial, and economic rivalries that had been intensifying from the late 19th cent." It specifies around 1870, just before CTR's investigations.
2. Jesus won the war in heaven on Oct 2, 1914, according to WTS. WW1 began in July/August. How did Satan, in the real mother of all wars, have a time-out from Michael to spent months on earth to create the conditions for WW1. Sounds like some behinds-the-scene cooperation to me. (Or just plain, old BS).
3. The FDS was not appointed (newer light) until 1919. Then why did Jesus or Jehovah provide "spiritual food" of this prophecy of 1914 of such critical importance to anyone but the FDS? What was the status of the person(s) who received this "prophecy" or "spiritual food?"

“The spring and summer of 1914 were marked in Europe by an exceptional tranquillity,” wrote British statesman Winston Churchill. People were generally optimistic about the future. “The world of 1914 was full of hope and promise,” said Louis Snyder in his book World War I.
True, for many years there had been intense rivalry between Germany and Britain. Nevertheless, as historian G. P. Gooch explains in his book Under Six Reigns: “A European conflict appeared less likely in 1914 than in 1911, 1912 or 1913 . . . The relations of the two governments were better than they had been for years.” According to Winston Churchill, a member of Britain’s 1914 cabinet: “Germany seemed with us, to be set on peace.”
