Germany, since the Bismarckian Era, had always expressed an interest in concluding an alliance with Great Britain. Her leaders realized that the geographic position of Germany exposed her frontiers to French and Russian attack and that only a British alliance would provide the protection against possible invasion. The possibility of Germany concluding such an agreement arose during 1901, but the proposal failed to materialize. Failure to conclude an alliance supposedly resulted from the actions of none other than Friedrich von Holstein.
