Addendum to the Memorandum, 1906

Schlieffen's memorandum had concerned itself almost exclusively with a war against France and the French army. In February 1906, he wrote another memorandum to go with his first. This examined the impact of the involvement of British forces in a future war between Germany and France. Schlieffen makes it clear that even if the British were able to mobilize their small expeditionary force before the decisive battle had been fought against the French, he believed their intervention would have little meaningful impact on his plan of operations.1
