First World War

Upon mobilization in August 1914, Schubert was recalled from retirement and given command of the German XIV Reserve Corps His Corps participated in the Battle of Mulhouse and the Battle of Lorraine, as part of the 7th Army

After six weeks, on 18 September 1914, he was sent to the Russian Front to take over the command of the 8th Army from Paul von Hindenburg Here he ordered his subordinate, General Hermann von François, to withdraw after the great victory of the First Battle of the Masurian Lakes François refused and dispatched a telegram to the OHL stating that "the Commander is badly counselled" The telegram impressed the Kaiser so much that he immediately relieved Schubert and gave François the command of the 8th Army
