The Nine Years War, 1688-1697 Monday, October 4 th / 2010 German victory over France & Victory at Pearl Harbor (these opened up a strategic contest on a grand scale, which they were unprepared for, and they utterly lost). Wanted to seize Phillipsburg The other states in Europe saw this as simply the last act of aggression against them In underestimating the other European power’s reactions, the French also badly misjudge the resources those powers could mobilize to counteract France’s actions Also misjudged the other European Power’s mindset at the time The French were confounded to see early signs of German resistance The “Magdeburg Concert” By the opening of the winter in 1688, people were surprised to see 20,000 imperial troops marching in France decided to deny the enemy (potential German invaders) France decided to embark on a devastating campaign (from winter 1688-89) This example of French brutality rallied the rest of Europe France was missing the strategic reason of their actions The French campaign of devastation backfired, and gave political propaganda to William III In November of 1688, he accepted the invitation of the English protestant constitution opposition.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
