Norway to receive German East Africa

Postby thaddeus_c » 24 Dec 2017 23:41

cannot track down the scenario again but IIRC Norway was to receive German East Africa as mandate or protectorate after the end of WWI

due to influence of one or more diplomats ... but cost or potential cost coupled with public apathy scrapped the idea

anyone have a book or source for this?

there was Norwegian diplomat influential at the time and that was genesis of them being awarded Tanzania, cannot run down his name or article again.

it indicated there was about zero interest in the country (Norway) in the project due to costs.
