Britain and the Last Tsar


Oxford University Press

This chapter describes Anglo-Russian relations from 1911 to 1914. Anglo-Russian relations were strained from the Potsdam conference to the outbreak of war in 1814. The British were apprehensive that too-intimate Russo-German relations would cause a collapse of Anglo-Russian amity. On the other, Edward Grey hoped for friendly Russo-German relations as part of his belief that cordial relations were possible throughout Europe. Grey's willingness to renegotiate the Anglo-Russian Convention in 1914 was an admission that the patch placed in 1907 on the long-standing running sore of Anglo-Russian enmity was only temporary.
