Socialists Karl Liebknecht and Lededur(?) struggle to restrain Imperial Germany from getting its slice of the world - Togo, Cameroon, East Africa, Southwest Africa - that other world powers carve up. France, Italy, the United States and Britain dig in.

Germany has passed on the expansion of its economic territory, which means that Germany can abdicate its responsibility as a policy-making country, but also restrain itself economically, thereby putting the situation of the working population at risk. Therefore "comrade" Calwer rightly says: "Commercial stagnation (halt) can not improving the condition of the workers." Nevertheless social democracy shamelessly invites the direct betrayal of the Fatherland, threatening mass strikes and revolution, failing which Germany would be forced to defend his rights and honor with the weapon. The Center stands solidly for a global and colonial policy, so that Germany can have land opened up for its surplus population, and gain new markets and sources of supply for trade and industry.
So vote for each of the Center's candidates and attend to his words.

These are discussed in the pages about specific battles, but that may not be the best place to examine the rationale behind them, or how they changed of the course of the war. The Topics section is our place to do that.
