This study analyses German and Ottoman efforts to promote a
Muslim uprising in the Ottoman Empire and the Entente
colonies in the First World War through intelligence and
propaganda operations. Where appropriate, reference will be
made to similar activities carried out by the British. These
activities ended in failure. Germany over-rated the power of
Pan-Islam and did not succeed in producing the desired
rebellions. Britain, on the other hand, underrated Ottoman
internal cohesion, and overrated the appeal of Arab
nationalism to gain the support of the Ottoman Arabs for
Britain’s ends.
