Algeciras. A great-power conference (January–April 1906), which resolved the first Moroccan crisis of 1905–6, during which Germany had vainly tried to weaken or destroy the Anglo-French Entente. The British gave solid backing to France. The crisis is often seen as the first direct step to August 1914.
