The Pan-German League, 1890-1914

By Mildred S. Wertheimer | Go to book overview

CHAPTER X
NON-GERMAN OPINION OF THE PAN-GERMAN LEAGUE;
CONCLUSIONS

In the preceding chapter the position of the League within Germany has been reviewed with reference to the reaction of the press to the League, its position in the Reichstag and the opinions of leading German statesmen concerning its activities. Non-German opinion of the League, however, is so hopelessly intermixed with opinion of Pan-Germanism, Pan-Teutonism and German chauvinism in general, that it is almost impossible to isolate it.

Perhaps the best known non-German writers on the subject of "Pan-Germanism"--for it must be given its best known title outside Germany--are Roland G. Usher ( Pan- Germanism, London, 1914) and André Chéradame ( Le plan Pangermaniste démasqué, Paris, 1916; The United States and Pan-Germania, New York, 1918). There is, too, a great mass of war literature on the subject, pamphlets, books and articles, but the works of Usher and Chéradame are representative.

Written in a facile style, Professor Usher Pan-Germanism flows on in glittering generalities and is quite innocent of bibliography and as a rule of references and footnotes. The broad, sweeping strokes of his pen paint a lurid picture of the vast scheme of Pan-Germanism, a sort of mysterious cult, which "aims at obtaining for Germany and her allies control of the world and at insuring their retention of that control for at least a generation."1
