Example text

This unanimity with regard to future aims is perhaps the basic cause of the rapid recovery, and even strengthening of its former influence, by the specifically Prussian caste of military officers and Junkers. It is this caste 43 THE RUSSIAN FACE OF GERMANY which coined the slogan for the guidance of German national policy: "Down with the Treaty of Versailles", to which in due course the whole German nation submitted. It submitted all the more readily, persuaded as to the righteousness and justice of such a demand, because for three generations all public education in Germany from the elementary schools to the Universities was impregnated with the Prussian spirit, while for a hundred years the most active part of the German educated classes imbued the soul of the German nation with the Hohenzollern legends.

I give here the opening and concluding paragraphs: "The reports," wrote M. Gauvain, "from the Baltic countries are confused and contradictory. Nevertheless, certain definite facts can be gleaned from them:— In the first place the German military leaders took advantage of the weakness of the Conference—which had authorised their continued occupation of Esthonia and Latvia after the Armistice of November 18th—to take root in these countries even against the orders of their Governments. In the second instance there is the obvious desire of the former PanGermanists to keep the means of action in those regions which they have always considered as a German fief.
