The man who was best acquainted
with the politics of Europe for a

been printed and the narrative is

Blowitz was the greatest detective

he notified the parties concerned
that as soon as Germany declared

make war on Germany England

Now here is the curious part
about it. Bismark was opposed to

Emperor William concocted. Unable
to pursuade them he took the French
ambassador into his confidence and
revealed the scheme to him. The am ambassador

the whole project.
Blowitz speculated as to BIsmark's
motive, and he concluded that "the
man of blood and iron" reasoned
that it would drive France to the des desperation

of '89, and if she arrives at that
state she would be invincible. He
knew that all the other nations of
Europe would interpose, and he took

After reading what Blowitz says
