Don't Miss the Right Moment, Tino!
"This cartoon, which appeared in the Telegraaf, 4 November 1916, is said to have greatly exasperated the Kaiser. The true explanation of 'Greek perfidy' appears to be: (a) That King Constantine and the Staff had always believed in the ultimate victory of the Central Powers, and that the former's hands were tied by a secret treaty with Germany; (b) That King Constantine had foretold to the Allies their failure tat the Dardanelles; (c) That the nation was, from 1915, sharply divided between the adherents of the Venizelos policy and that of Gounaris; (d) That all the official assurances and explanations given to the Entente, January-November 1916, were yielded to force majeure, whereas the handing over of the frontier forts to the Germano-Bulgar forces was a concerted menace to the Allies at Salonica."
