Chapter Summary

This chapter overviews German perceptions of the conflict in Manchuria and the effects of its convoluted relations with Russia during the Russo-Japanese War on its subsequent geopolitical position. First, the modern (Prussian) German Navy had seen action only twice in East Asian Waters. Second, with the seizure of Tsingtao, which was meant to be governed by the German Navy, the Reich disposed of a military stronghold and a model town. Third, with the construction program in progress since 1897 the German Navy took a keen interest in the naval battles going on in East Asia. Weakened Russia asking for peace had to rely on the good offices of befriended nations like Germany. It was the front that Germany had tried in vain to break up during the Russo-Japanese War and that was now stronger than ever.
