Week 10 Discussion   Week 10 Discussion, please provide posts by Sunday at 11:59 p.m. CT Q1    35 messages -  35 unread   By late 1915, talked stirred of a negotiated peace amongst limited  sections of the army hierarchy. What were some obstacles in the  path of such a conclusion to hostilities? How legitimate were those  concerns? I think any negotiated peace in 1915 would have the allies looking to  return to the antebellum borders.  Germany had captured so much  land it is hard to believe they would return any of it.  The major  political parties within the country would not have supported a status  quo peace.  There was also the desire to make Belgium  economically and militarily dependent on Germany.  This desire  continued during the Versailles negotiations.  In the eyes of the  German people this was a justified struggle since the Russians,  supported by France attacked the Fatherland.  Also with German  success in the east, it was conceivable that the Schlieffen Plan had  a chance to succeed even with the current stalemate on the Western  Front.
