The Anglo-French Military and Naval Conversations, 1906-1912: a Study in Pre-War Diplomacy

The Anglo-French Military and Naval Conversations, 1906-1912: a Study in Pre-War Diplomacy

Their difficulties were stupendous; British governments had for years stood aloof from Continental agreements, but precedent was forced to give way before the perspicacity and perseverance of these two French statesmen. Delcassé had contributed the Entente Cordiale to the French cause in 1904.
