As promised the map we were using last lesson. This is more useful than the text book ones because it reflect the collapse of the Ottoman Empire – thus showing how Morocco and the Balkans are two sides of the same problem.
You may like to note also,
- Germany has no obvious interest in either theatre (another Bismarckian principle gone).
- The logic of French interest in Morocco.
- The chaos of Austro-Hungarian boarders in an age of nationalism.
- The legitimacy of German fear of Russia and Einkreisungpolitik.
Have a good weekend.
