Summary

"Endgame describes the period before and after 1907 when the tension and hostility between the two powers was apparently concluded. The Anglo-Russian Convention of 1907 seemed to be a deliberate move to stabilise relations and replace rivalry with co-operation - rapprochement in the face of the threat from Imperial Germany. Here was the foundation of the Triple Entente between Britain, France and Russia so vital in 1914."--BOOK JACKET.
