Full Scale War
- I am not exactly sure, but I believe that it was because of British diplomacy. --Revised 17:03, 18 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Name of Ship
Does anyone have information on the specific name of the German warship? I have heard that it is Agadir but I wasn't able to prove that from any sources. I did find at http://orbat.com/site/history/historical/germany/navy1906.html that the name of the famous ship was the Panther. Does this sound right? Anyone know anything about this? -- --Revised 16:57, 18 Apr 2005 (UTC)
- Yeah the ship is called a Panther... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 184.108.40.206 (talk • contribs) 08:41, 24 May 2005 (UTC).
Size of Cameroons?
275,000 cm^2 seems ludicrously small; it is less than 27.5 square meters, which is about a quarter of a football field. Even if it were than many square meters, it would still only be a quarter of a square kilometer. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk • contribs) 20:50, 4 October 2006 (UTC)
- I agree, i believe that may be a mistake. Also, upon visiting the Treaty_of_Fez page, you will see that it says km2 on there. I think cm2 may have been a mistake... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs) 00:08, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
Doesn't it seem unlikely that the reason the Panther did this in 1911 was something that happened in 1906? I'm prepared to believe that the underlying resentment was still there, but what made it happen in July 1911, was there a trigger? Regards, sbandrews (t) 20:12, 28 March 2007 (UTC)
in his book The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money, and Power, daniel yergin claims it was this incident that convinced winston churchill, then home secretary, that britain must make the radical step of converting it's navy from coal to oil, a decision of great consequence. shouldn't that be added? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Nudve (talk • contribs) 08:50, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
- Absolutely. If you can provide a page reference, go for it. — Brian (talk) 09:03, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
The introductory paragraph included this sentence:
- France thus broke with both the Act of Algeciras that had ended the First Moroccan Crisis and the Franco-German Accord of 1909.
I have several problems with including this here. (1) It seems to be an opinion. (2) Nothing in the Algeciras Conference article confirms this conclusion. (3) There is no mention of the 1909 accord in the Background section. Nor does Wikipedia contain any other mention of such a Franco-German Accord.
Surely, the purpose of the introduction is to summarize the main body of the article. Whereas this statement seems only to blame the French for this crisis, without subsequent elaboration.
Therefore, I have removed it from the introduction. If it belongs anywhere in this article, I would suggest that be the Background or Timeline of events sections.
- For the latter, cf. E. W. Edwards, "The Franco-German Agreement on Morocco, 1909", The English Historical Review, 78, 308 (1963), 483–513.
