Summary:
When the war broke out the German flag flew over a fairly compact group of settlements in the Pacific and a number of great colonies in Africa.

Abstract:

When the war broke out the German flag flew over a fairly compact group of settlements in the Pacific and a number of great colonies in Africa. But the German colonies were not like those of other nations. The vast majority of colonies came to their parent countries by a sort of natural accretion. Men were driven by the imperious thirst for adventure to travel far from their native lands into the unknown. When they reached habitable lands they made the fact known, and soon a stream of settlers and traders followed in their wake. In such wise the parent countries came to find their interests spread abroad and their settlements were proportionate to their liking for seafaring. The German colonies were acquired very differently, and their history is directly traceable to the difference.
