1900 map that includes north Africa.


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.
