FRANCE IN DANGER

This book was first published in France in October, 1913, which makes the warnings and the forecast contained in it all the more remarkable.
“The shock of the Agadir coup brought France with one bound to her feet. Those who observed her from without seemed no less surprised than those who thought they understood her well because it had fallen to their lot to govern her.”
“From that moment a change came over the country; the order of interests in the public mind was suddenly reversed: questions of internal politics, which had satisfied the popular appetite since the defeat of 1870, were now relegated to the second rank, and national sentiment demanded that the first place should be given to measures dealing with the standing menace from without and the necessity of confronting it with honour.”
