Example text

Despite not wishing to alienate either side in the constitutional dispute and vowing to stay out of what they saw as an internal affair, both the British and French governments were powerless to prevent other states and even volunteers from their own countries from aiding one or other of the combatants in this desperate ideological struggle for ascendancy in the Iberian peninsula. 90 Germany’s attitude to the leftist Spanish government, which had been predictably hostile from the outset, had worsened still further in August after an explosive incident near Cadiz involving the German steamer Kamerun and a cruiser and submarine belonging to the Republican Navy.

Eyeing Neither one thing nor the other 15 territorial acquisitions in Manchuria and China and realising that the only way they were going to get them was by force, infantry troops of the Imperial Japanese Army staged the Mukden incident on 18 September 1931 and used the ensuing disorder as a pretext for a full scale invasion and eventual annexation of Manchuria.
