Example text

1905, abbiamo detto. Il piano tedesco prendeva nome dal capo di stato maggiore dell’epoca, che si chiamava Schlieffen, il «piano Schlieffen». Era stato elaborato in quell’anno, non a caso, perché è l’anno in cui la Russia è particolarmente in difficoltà: la guerra col Giappone è cominciata l’anno prima, 1904, dura ancora, e si complica – per così dire – con la rivoluzione scoppiata a Pietroburgo, la rivoluzione appunto del 1905; quindi è un momento nel quale lo stato maggiore tedesco si pone la questione di approfittare delle difficoltà del grande vicino, ed elabora piani di guerra che possono entrare in funzione anche a distanza di anni.

C. La località più ad ovest del Belgio capitola il 15 novembre: quindi tra il 20 agosto e il 15 novembre i tedeschi sono inchiodati sul territorio belga... altro che guerralampo! Le sei settimane, in cui dovevano capitolare addirittura Parigi, Nancy e non so quali altre località della Francia, sono svanite, sono state bruciate attraverso una campagna in Belgio durissima e assolutamente inaspettata per l’alto comando. 46 L’alleanza anglo-russa Abbiamo gettato uno sguardo alla tragica ed eroica situazione del Belgio aggredito dalla Germania e abbiamo anche osservato come la presunta guerra-lampo sia stata frustrata già nel momento dell’attacco al Belgio rivelatosi un osso durissimo.

Ma l’idea di una compartecipazione di tutti alla responsabilità, è anche un’idea – non infondata – di matrice socialista, radicale: un nome tra tutti può bastare per caratterizzare quest’interpretazione: è quello di Lenin, il quale ha scritto reiteratamente sull’argomento saggi notevoli che sono al tempo stesso di politica e di analisi storica, incentrati sulla nozione secondo cui l’imperialismo in quanto tale – fase ultima dello sviluppo capitalistico – produce conflitti inter-imperialistici, e quindi guerra.
