Portugal saw the fringes of its West-African possessions disputed on three sides. In addition, bilateral accords were concluded subsequently on the delimitation of these spheres. Koskenniemi FN ; Gaurier When the German ambassador in London learned of this treaty, he warned of the negative repercussions it may have for merchants belonging to neither nation.
Merchants from all over Germany sent petitions to Berlin protesting against the treaty and pointing to notes of protest from French and Dutch merchants doing business in the Congo region. In April , the German minister in Lisbon declared that Germany would not recognize the Anglo-Portuguese treaty for its citizens, since the treaty was bilateral and no other powers had been invited to the negotiations.
Already in March the French government served a like notice. Portuguese insistence on the treaty remained futile. Next to the Turkish, the Portuguese delegation under Luciano Cordeiro was considered the weakest of all participants. Kongo-Frage: f. Weisung W. Bismarck , 1. Stern f. A mere kilometers of the southern bank of the Congo River and the Cabinda enclave, north of the Congo River mouth, were conceded to Portugal.
Esprit, Paris to Propagatio Fide, Anghie 57; Rodrigues 28; Reeves ; Axelson Courcel ; Stengers ; f. Within the next years European powers concluded bilateral treaties attempting to define their different spheres of influence more exactly. Changing authorities have since tried to detail with ever-growing precision the course of these boundaries.
Carrington ; Shipway 20; Anghie Hunters, traders, and missionaries were the first to enter the territories of Nama, Damara, Herero, and Ovambo. German missionaries in the service of the London Missionary Society had arrived in the territories north of the Orange River around when Heinrich Schmelen — followed his congregation.
In they erected a station he called Bethanien on the fringes of the Namib Desert. The Rhenish Missionary Society began to set up several mission stations in the area that was, according to the rules of international law, terra nullius. In the British Cape Colony only extended its jurisdiction over Walvis Bay and its hinterland and the islands off the coast of Damaraland again, the Portuguese protested. This enclave was used as a victualing point for the Navy base on Saint Helena Island.
Berat 25; Oerm. For a long time Bismarck declined any overseas project. At the same time, he aimed at an entente with France by provoking the British government under Gladstone. Gissibl on contempor. He soon lost any interest in colonial affairs. An increase in rebellions led to the deployment of more troops. The Imperial government had to take over the administration of the Schutzgebiete and a colonial administration was set up, overseen since by a new section of the Foreign Office, the Colonial Department.
Canis ; ; Wagner ; Simo f. Fernandes de Oliveira The German minister in Lisbon, Richard von Schmidthals — , therefore, pointed to the mouth of the Kunene River, more than kilometers north of Cape Frio, as the starting point of the border.
At Humbe the course of the border would depart from that of the river and would follow the degree of latitude up to the Kavango River. In , very few Europeans had ever visited the area; the maps they compiled were scarce and imprecise. Data on exact coordinates could not be expected from them. Officials in Berlin and Lisbon were well aware of their limited knowledge about the areas under negotiation. They made several counterproposals, one of them being that instead of Humbe certain cataracts would define the point from where the border departs from the course of the river.
Envoy Pindella to AA Bieberstein , Schinz Akweenda f. From this point the line shall run along the parallel of latitude to the Cubango [or Okavango] River [for kilometers], and thence it shall continue along the course of the same river [for kilometers] as far as Andara, which place is to remain in the German sphere of interest.
From this place the boundary line will continue in a straight line, in a due easterly direction to the rapids of Catima on the Zambezi. Attesting once more to its rather provisional character, this text could barely be used for demarcations on the ground.
The future would show that the weak points of the treaty were the definition of the starting points of the two straight lines. Instead of using geometrical positioning not available in , the treaty referred to two toponyms: 1. The questions to be posed became soon evident: Which of the cataracts south of Humbe and where are the Canna Hills? Where who or what is Andara? As will be seen, answers could not easily be found; the history of this border would become very complex.
Dobler 16; Baud Akweenda Luso-German Colonial Relations before the First World War 39 was agreed upon using only physical features and lines of latitude. The new border thus cut the settlement areas of Ovamboland in two. European visitors to Ovamboland between the Kunene and Kavango Rivers would thus find it difficult to know in which colony they were at a given location.
Generally created in the previous few decades, intelligence and security services saw strong development during the war: the warring sides were committed to espionage behind enemy lines and in the neutral countries, but also performed other tasks such as tapping radio communication; sabotage; counterintelligence; and propaganda. The secret war was also fought in the mind, as all warring societies were consumed by spy mania, and began to recognize their own spies as true heroes and heroines. The First World War was fought not only on the battlefields and in the ammunition factories, it was also the scene of a large-scale secret war in which the various belligerents engaged through their intelligence services. This contribution will first provide an overview of intelligence before the war, and will then consider the ways in which the warring parties used espionage during the war or tried to protect themselves against it, including in the field of communications and in the territory of neutral states. It will also consider the way war contributed to transforming intelligence services, and will end by evaluating the place of espionage in post-war societies. Our current knowledge of espionage and intelligence during World War I remains limited.
Puerto Rico was annexed by the United States in accordance to the terms of the Treaty of Paris of , ratified on December 10, , as consequence of the Spanish—American War. As the induction of Puerto Ricans into the armed forces increased many were assigned to units in the Panama Canal Zone and the British West Indies to replace the continental troops serving in regular Army units. They were often subject to the racial discrimination that was widespread in the United States at the time.
