and serves as a good. Okay in this affair, Prussian officers stationed in Alsace insulted the local population and generally behave like they were in kind of like a colonial police force in contact with foreigners rather than fellow soldiers and fellow countrymen within their own country. This led to outrage in a few cases of violence, but more importantly. The Kaiser and his gang chose to support the Prussian officers and accused the locals of being influenced by French propaganda. A long story short with this incident happening just a year prior to the war.
