3. Answer the following essay on Death at Sea (25 points/2.5 d-s pages)
Personality sometimes plays a crucial historical role in determining the course events take. We have already seen this in lecture and video – or soon will be – with leading figures like William II of Germany, Jacky Fisher of Britain, Nicholas II, Alexandra, and Rasputin of Russia, Dragutin Dmitrejevic and Gavrilo Princip of the Bland Hand, and others. Personality also factored into the outcome of 1914 naval action described in Death At Sea. Focusing on the personal strenths or weaknesses of Graf Maximilian von Spee and Karl von Muller on the German side, and Christopher Cradock and Frederick Sturdee on the British side, explain how certain decisions that were made, actions that were either exploited or squandered, altered the outcome of navel campaigns in the Indian Ocean, the Eastern Pacific (off Chile), and the South Atlantic – and may very well have affected the outcome of World War One.
